Locate & Submit Data Sources
Documenting public records found online
If you found a good source of data, you can submit it to our database!
You don't need to know how to code to do this! However, feel free to write scripts or tools to help you in your work. If you make something super-useful, please consider sharing it back with the community in GitHub.
- 5.Fill in as much info as you can, and submit. Only the fields marked with a * are required, but more information helps people find the source.
- 6.Find as many Data Sources as you can from your chosen agency, and repeat!
To protect us all from spam and rudeness, only approved submissions are published. Our team reviews these at least weekly.
If you already have several of Data Sources in a spreadsheet—maybe from a previous project, or because you collected them in bulk—you can submit them to us in any format.
- 1.Check to see whether there are already Data Sources for the agency you're working on.
In the event that someone wants to use data you've provided, you can give instructions for how you should be contacted. PDAP can also serve as a go-between to protect your identity.
We'll import the CSV and make sure the changes are reflected appropriately.
