The Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) has launched the District of
Columbia’s Digital Public Square (DPS) which puts you, the citizen, in the driver’s seat to discover how District agencies work, participate in the democratic process and connect with your government. Popular downloads available at the Digital Public Square include Crime Incidents and Arrest data from the Metropolitan Police Department, public space permits from DC Department of Transportation, and much more. Users can also get information through live data feeds, custom downloads and a comprehensive data catalog.

In addition to getting information and data, visitors to the DPS can get information about the District of Columbia through featured applications like iLive.at, DC Historic Tours, Park It DC, and “We the People Wiki.” Finally, existing communication tools like Twitter, and community network tools such as Facebook and Linkin, provide even more avenues for our community members to stay connected to other participants in the Digital Public Square.
