Abstract

We are investigating community data, which is data gathered, analyzed, interpreted, and used by members of a local community. We discuss the ways that developing data literacy could result in more substantive civic participation and decision-making. Community members are already engaged in community data practices. Our goal is to help make these data more visible and accessible throughout the community and to engage the community at large in deliberation and planning with respect to its data. We report high-level outcomes of a community data hackathon that we facilitated along with a group of local water quality stakeholders. In order to design and develop an open community data platform and to build social infrastructure to sustain a long-term community data project, we plan to organize a series of these community-wide hackathon events.
