1 min read

Commerce-DepartmentThe Commerce Department’s data service has launched a new public-private partnership project intended to help data scientists and programmers gain access to the agency’s open data.

The Commerce Data Usability Project aims to provide tutorials contributed by the private sector, academia and government that contain suggestions on how to use datasets from various perspectives, the department said Thursday.

The department will begin to offer tutorials based on weather, cybersecurity, satellite and demographic datasets in order to help users analyze the risk of hail damage, identify patterns in cybersecurity vulnerabilities, measure the population and aid in community services.

MapBox, Earth Genome, Microsoft and Zillow also plan to contribute tutorials that illustrate their use of commerce data for operational applications.
