Generocity is a partner of OpenDataVote.
Last month we told you about OpenDataVote, the civic initiative headed by mapping firm Azavea that aims to get more Philadelphians familiar with the city’s available open data sets.

Throughout March, local nonprofits (including Public Interest Law Center, University City District, Community Design Collaborative and Philadelphia Parks Alliance) named sets that currently exist but haven’t yet been made public with the goal of encouraging the City of Philadelphia to make them so.

Well, voting is now open, and there 19 nominated data sets to choose from on a range of topics, such as sheriff’s sales, historic designated properties and donors to the School District of Philadelphia. The three data sets that receive the most votes will, indeed, be released by the city.

You can vote once per day through 5 p.m. on Monday, May 1. The winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 2, at our second Tech in the Commons bootcamp event for place-based nonprofits.

Vote here

(Note that there are two pages of nominations.)

Heads up, the prize money has doubled. That’s right — your favorite nonprofit on this list has a chance to win $1,000, $2,000 or $4,000, in addition to getting a useful new set of data to better do their work.

Follow along at @opendatavote on both Facebook and Twitter.
