{ Preliminary Description }

Open data really shines when it can be easily, searched, interacted with and combined with other open datasets. Unfortunately, to do this often requires coding knowledge or the use of closed propitiatory platforms. At the Spatial Data Science Center at the University of Chicago, we have been developing a free and open source platform called Matico ( https://www.matico.app/ ) that allows anyone to create rich, interactive open data apps and dashboards with no or very little technical knowledge.

In this session, we will demo how to use Matico to build a sophisticated application that utilizes multiple datasets from the NYC open data portal and encourage people to build their own apps and dashboards to enhance the value of open data.
