Los Angeles is one of the leading cities in the world in regards to open data and transparency. Los Angeles' open data initiative began with Mayor Eric Garcetti's third executive directive issued on December 18th, 2013. The directive states: "To promote transparency and accountability, the City of Los Angeles (“City”) will make publicly available raw data in easy-to-find and accessible formats. Open Data is raw data generated or collected by government agencies made freely available for use by the public, subject only to valid privacy, confidentiality, security, and other legal restrictions." To that end, the City has worked to share data with the public across many platforms for Angelenos to conduct research, develop apps or simply to poke around.
