Go Code Colorado

Client: Colorado Secretary of State

The Challenge

Public data is collected by governmental agencies across the state of Colorado and is available to state residents through the Colorado Information Marketplace. However, this data is often not presented in a format that is useful or meaningful to the public. Many businesses can benefit from the use of public data if it were presented in a user-friendly format and coupled with other data sets.

The Solution

The Colorado Department of State, along with many other state agencies, created the Business Intelligence Center (BIC) program to make more public data sets freely available and to increase the usability of that data. Go Code Colorado, an apps challenge and the premier initiative of BIC, was crafted by a collection of state agencies, stakeholders, and contractors to address business problems through the development of applications that leverage public data.
