Decide if your data is safe to publish
If you are sure your data is safe to publish (it does not carry a privacy or security risk), you can move on to the next step.
If your data carries a privacy or security risk, you will need to make changes to reduce the risk.
We've created toolkits to help you decide if your data is safe to publish and what to do next.
Upload your data to the Open Data Portal
To share your data with the public, we need to move it from wherever it lives (your database, system, app, spreadsheet, etc.) onto our platform. This process is often referred to a "extract, transform, load" (ETL) or building a data pipeline.
Review and publish your data
After you've completed all steps, review your data and metadata.
If everything looks good, hit publish to make your data public.
