New site provides data on Seattle neighborhoods

Information about Seattle neighborhoods is part of a new website from the Open Knowledge Foundation that organizes data from a variety of cities in 17 categories, including construction permits, crime report data, property deeds, and restaurant inspections.

The new database, the U.S. City Open Data Census, aims to simplify the search for neighborhood information.

An overview page provides color-coded bars to answer a variety of questions for each category in each city. All of the information on the overview page is linked, so that visitors can click on a group of bars to get more detail, then compare and contrast the data that's available on listed cities.
