On July 25, 2017, the Executive Office of the President Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will host a Roundtable on Open Data as a driver for economic growth.
Here’s why we’re focusing on this opportunity—and how you can help us. Federal Open Data is a strategic national resource.
The value of Federal Open Data to the United States has been estimated at hundreds of billions of dollars. companies use open data to build mobile applications, GPS navigation tools, and real-time mapping platforms – all to find population growth trends, reduce road congestion, track flu outbreaks, and improve disaster response.
The California Seafloor and Coastal Mapping Program has brought together federal, state, and local stakeholders to develop and share an extensive variety of seafloor-mapping datasets.

Open data is free, publicly available data that anyone can access and use without restrictions. American businesses depend on this government data to optimize their operations, improve their marketing, and develop new products and services. weather, GPS, Census, and health data support billions more in revenue in other sectors.
Federal Open Data also helps guide business investment, foster innovation, improve employment opportunities, and spur economic growth. Department of Commerce calculates that internet publishing, consulting and market research firms use this data to generate more than 0 billion in revenues each year. companies tailor Precision Medicine treatments to individual needs, while others empower patients to find the best care at the best price by using data on hospitals, medical groups, medicines, and patient outcomes.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
To be sure, many people remain puzzled that someone would want to find a romantic partner online – 23% of Americans agree with the statement that “people who use online dating sites are desperate” – but in general it is much more culturally acceptable than it was a decade ago.
