Open Data Catalog is an open-source version of the site code behind OpenDataPhilly.org, a portal that provides access to over 100 open data sets, applications, and APIs related to the Philadelphia region. Open Data Catalog is intended to display information and links to publicly available data in an easily searchable format. The code also includes options for data owners to submit data for consideration and for registered public users to nominate a type of data they would like to see openly available to the public. Written using Django, Python and PostgreSQL.

For installation instructions, see the README file included in this repository.

Open Data Catalog is not the only open source catalog out there. We think it's quick to set up, easy to use, quick to style and cheap to operate.
