A Guide to Shift's Open Data Ecosystem

In an effort to make data more accessible to Colorado's social sector, we are currently building and enhancing our Open Data Ecosystem, which optimizes our data storage and provides more ways for our partners to access and analyze our data. The Open Data Ecosystem serves three main functions.

  • Secure storage for our data holdings
  • Mechanism to feed our open data tools with reliable data
  • Portal for partners to access our data resources

To learn more about the ecosystem and how to best leverage it, check out our brief. If you have additional questions about how we store our data, reach out to Nikki Zhu, Shift's data curator.
