Show Us the Data

The National Coalition for History asks you to Help Choose the “Most Wanted Federal Documents” that you think should be released to the public:

This week, OpenTheGovernment.Org and the Center for Democracy and Technology launched a project aimed at identifying vital government information and encouraging the federal government to put it within easy reach of the public. This project and survey will lead to a report, recommending documents and data that the federal government should make easier to find and use.

The project’s launch follows up on a directive from President Obama to federal agencies to proactively make information available to the public. The goal is to identify the documents and databases the public most wants to be made publicly available in usable formats. The items can be information known or thought to be in the federal government’s possession, or information that the federal government should be collecting or generating.

Just go to Show Us the Data before March 9 and vote for your favorites.
