The City of Franklin is proud to launch its new Open Data performance website – https://performance.franklintn.gov. The City teamed up with Socrata, a company that provides cloud-based solutions for online data, to create the website. It is the first in Franklin dedicated to the City’s strategic plan – FranklinForward - and allows anyone to fully explore each of the themes, sub-themes and goals which comprise the plan and the data behind them.
“We want the citizens of Franklin to have the ability to not only be informed about what the City does with their resources but to dig in and see exactly the same information we see on a daily basis”, said City Administrator Eric Stuckey. “Together, we can share a common understanding of what information is used in building and reaching our shared goals, and in turn build a stronger and more sustainable Franklin.”
Unlike other websites, what makes this site unique is the full ability for users to explore the data. Rather than just a static webpage, users can click any chart or table on a page and access the data behind the graphic. Users can then export the data and do their own visualizations, or analysis. Users can even export snapshots of the data into a variety of display formats and even post through social media.
