Dataset Release Timeline

Welcome to the Open Data Buffalo dataset release timeline! This timeline is a routinely updated and publicly accessible schedule for when publishable City data and datasets are added to the Open Data Buffalo portal.
As publishable datasets are identified, the Open Data Buffalo team will determine approximately how long it will take to curate, contextualize, and review each dataset for quality, clarity, consistency, and accuracy. The dataset will then be added to the timeline.
Once the dataset is added to the timeline, the Open Data Buffalo team, including departmental data liaisons, will set out to: restructure the data into a machine-readable format; look at means of potential automation onto the portal; and build metadata to increase the usability of the dataset.
All release dates are approximate estimates therefore subject to change.
