The City of Houston’s Bruce Haupt led a discussion at Net2 Houston’s May 14 meetup.
The topic? The City of Houston has a big heap of data and they want your ideas on how to use it!

Below is Bruce’s slide deck. It includes additional project ideas (snapshots) and links to projects from other Cities.


Bruce shared the vision of Mayor Annise Parker and Council Member Ed Gonzalez for utilizing Houston’s Open Data Initiative to improve their city. He showed examples of how initiatives like this have benefitted other cites, and showed off some of his favorite projects.
