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. 


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. 

 

INTERACTIVE PRODUCT
DESIGN

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.
