Open Data in Los Angeles: ControlPanelLA
Join Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin and Councilmember Bob Blumenfield for an exploration of the City of Los Angeles' new open data web portal, ControlPanelLA.
Controller Galperin and Councilmember Blumenfield are hosting a training session on how to use ControlPanelLA on Thursday, January 9th from 7-8:30 pm at Councilmember Blumenfield's Reseda office and we hope to see you there!
ControlPanelLA is the City's new open data website that not only reveals the City's revenues and spending, but also makes them accessible, searchable and able to be downloaded by the public. This first phase of ControlPanelLA includes data detailing billions of dollars of City transactions – with specifics on nearly 1,000 revenue sources, 600 expenditure accounts and bi‐weekly payroll for nearly 50,000 City employees. The tool also opens up the City’s “checkbook” via CheckbookLA, an application allowing users to search tens of thousands of payments to external vendors by department, vendor name, or expenditure type. This training session will cover contents of the database, how to read, search and export data, will demonstrate real time searches and results and will conclude with a question and answer session.
ControlPanelLA is accessible at https://controllerdata.lacity.org/.
