What is Data Portal?
The Data Projects Portal is an attempt from the Data4Good team to provide a repository of various data initiatives within the Los Angeles region, enabling stakeholders to search existing data efforts in a more discoverable and user-friendly way. It’s the wiki for all data projects/initiatives – a free community platform to share your data work with others so that they can take your work to next level. COVID-19 has exposed disparities and silos in our work. So many organizations worked on the same COVID projects. Even though our intentions are selfless but redundant projects in a silo doesn’t help the community. How can multiply our efforts, instead of diminishing it? Our objective is to avoid reinventing the wheel and build upon each other experiences. We are counting on all of you to make this happen.
Who are we?
We are a “Data4Good” team who are data executives within the SoCal region and volunteering to make SoCal data-driven connected community.
How does it work?
The Data Portal is a crowd-sourcing platform where data leaders share their work summary on this portal. Anyone who is planning to start a new project can search for related projects on the portal to avoid duplicate effort as well as learn from others’ experiences.
Why should I list my project here?
Data4Good mission is to empower both organizations and community members to leverage the power of data to create positive social impact in their communities. We believe that we can build upon each other’s experiences and avoid duplicative efforts. We are only asking to share the project title and summary of your work without sharing any confidential details. The interested parties can contact you and it is up to you to decide if you are comfortable sharing specific details. Our objective is to connect stakeholders who are working on similar projects and can get benefitted from each other.
Who can use it?
We believe in serving the community and make the world a better place. The Data Portal can be used by anyone free of cost. We request everyone to contribute by sharing your project details so that others can benefit from it.
