About Open Data
Open data is defined as such:
A piece of content or data is open if anyone is free to use, reuse, and redistribute it - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and/or share-alike.

The City of Weatherford is committed to publishing data for public consumption in a format that is easy to view, manipulate, and use. The FY13 budget, adopted September 25, 2012, includes funding for this purpose.

Weatherford Open Data
The City of Weatherford has established a commitment to open data, and intends to provide high value datasets in a convenient format. These datasets can be found at data.weatherfordtx.gov.

Goals of Weatherford's Open Data Program
The goal of this program is to provide valuable and relevant information to the Citizens of Weatherford in an accessible format. Where practicable, OMB will follow the guidelines that published information should be:
  • Primary data (granular data collected at the source before being aggregated);
  • Timely (presented as quickly as necessary to retain the value of the data);
  • Accessible (available to the widest range of users for the widest range of uses possible); and
  • Machine readable (structured in a fashion that allows for automated processing).
