We’re happy to announce a new feature on San Francisco’s open data portal! Socrata has improved the user experience around datasets through dataset “Primers.” This feature serves as a landing page for datasets, allowing San Francisco department publishers to better highlight important metadata and related content.
Hundreds of other volunteers have taken up adopting and caring for City drains through the City’s Adopt a Drain program. The online platform is the result of collaboration among City agencies and civic technology volunteers at Code for San Francisco. It has made visible the roughly 25,000 storm drains and catch basins that the City maintains. It's also done something surprising.
