Cities around the world are making information accessible to people around the globe and Chicago is part of this exciting trend. The Digital Hub site from the Chicago Mayor's Office provides information about a variety of new digital initiatives, including data sets from different city departments and information about hackathons. On the homepage, visitors can look over sections that include City Accounts, Videos, Images, and Civic Data Apps. In City Accounts, visitors can learn about the social media profiles of different departments, such as the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Public Library. Moving along, the Civic Data Apps include hundreds of high quality free apps, such as an abandoned building finder and a guide to farmers' markets around Cook County. Also, visitors will enjoy the blog as it provides timely updates about new releases and datasets.
