Enigma.io is a NYC-based startup that launched out of beta a little over two years ago.
Enigma.io makes over 100,000 datasets from more than 5,000 local, state, federal, and international sources, publicly available through a smart graphical user interface.
All the datasets are released under a Creative Commons License allowing anyone in the open-source or civic community to freely build upon them. Their blog is also a great read for a data practitioner.
If you’re looking to write the next riveting data science story or help shine a light on some dark aspect of society, this is the place to start!
