When it comes to public data,
transparency doesn't always equal clarity.
HACK OREGON IS A COMMUNITY-POWERED NON-PROFIT BUILDING CIVIC DATA PROJECTS TO PROMOTE ENGAGEMENT, AWARENESS, AND QUALITY OF LIFE.
Our work is non-Partisan and our projects are made by volunteer teams of developers, designers, domain experts, and government leadership working together.
Here's what a few of our elected representatives have to say.
Some Things We Do Best
OPEN SOURCE DATABASE ARCHITECTURE
Some of our most important work happens behind the scenes; we won’t stop until all of Oregon’s public data is available through beautiful open source API points.
We assemble short term interdisciplinary teams of designers, technologists, and domain experts to build digital solutions for some of the toughest information problems facing our cities.
STORYTELLING WITH DATA VISUALIZATION
Whether we’re creating browsable libraries for open exploration or static images to tell a specific story, we’re captivated by data as a medium for civic art.
