Data Hosting

You can import citizen-generated datasets into the Brigade Open Data Sharing Platform so that they can be searched, filtered, commented on, and shared with other Brigades. We also support importing and mapping geospatial data via Shapefile and KML/KMZ.

API Hosting

Once your data is imported, you can use our Socrata API Foundry tools to create customized, managed APIs for your datasets. We'll automatically generate accompanying documentation and our management tools will help you track usage of your APIs.

Brigade Page

Your Brigade deserves a open data portal to organize, host, and make citizen driven data API accessible. You'll have all the same functionality as is present in a full-fledged Socrata data catalog, but personalized for your Brigade.


We believe Brigades need the ability to share and support each other within their regions. Data uploaded to the Brigade Open Data Sharing Platform will automatically be available to all Brigades.


Get support through our user-supported forums and watch how-to videos. A Socrata Data Solutions Architect will also provide training to you and the Brigade. If you would like in-person support from Socrata at an event, contact us and we will be glad to discuss options.
