Local open government data powers software applications that help people make informed decisions – from when the next bus will arrive to how neighborhoods are zoned.

While we can’t and don’t endorse specific apps, below are just a few examples of government, citizen, and business tools that: use open government data from the United States; are accessible, vetted, and available; and are, for the majority, free and do not require registration to use. Submit local government application suggestions at Data.gov/contact and see more examples of applications made with open government data at Data.gov/applications.
