2019 Open Cities Index Results and Report
The 2019 Open Cities Index (OCI) is the fourth year that the survey has been released after first launching in 2015, and subsequently in 2016 and 2017. PSD paused the OCI program in 2018 to focus efforts on the launch of the first Geospatial Maturity Index (GMI), measuring the maturity of GIS programs across North America. This also afforded PSD the opportunity to conduct a more robust consultation and engagement process with open data leaders to ensure that the 2019 OCI survey adequately captured the significant changes underway with municipal open data programs.
This report provides an overview of the results from the 2019 OCI survey, including a list of Canada’s Top 20 Most Open Cities, national trends, and insights from survey respondents.
