The City open data portal allows anyone to access and download City data.
The goal of the Minneapolis Open Data Portal is to encourage access to data managed by the City of Minneapolis, making content available to be freely used, modified and shared by anyone for any purpose. The open data portal does not represent all the public information managed by the City, but it is meant to make the most frequently requested and most useful data easily accessible with the intent of adding content over time.
Users can download data in various formats, visualize the data in charts and maps where available, and read metadata about the information. Users can also subscribe via RSS feed to get notified when the data is updated. Programmers can access APIs that let them use the data without needing to download anything.
Accessing the portal will allow you to view and search data including but not limited to: administrative boundaries used by the City, various physical assets managed by the City, environmental resources, and full lists of other datasets. These are shared free of charge and with minimal licensing. We intend to continually build this content collection as the data becomes available.
For best results, use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to access the portal.
