The race for government transparency

The scorecard has been published on the race to see which San Francisco agency is most eager to increase its transparency.

Mayor Gavin Newsom in recent months announced the launch of DataSf.org, a Web site where The City publishes all kinds of government information in hopes that tech professionals will harness it and make user-friendly applications. Newsom has called on city agencies to release as much data as possible as soon as possible.

DataSF.org is listing which agencies are leading the way in publishing sets of their data. The lead agency is sort of obvious: The Department of Technology has released 78 so-called datasets.

The Department of Public Works is second with 18, followed by the Department of Building Inspections (5) and Department of Environment (3).

In last place is the Municipal Transportation Agency with just one released dataset.
