Socrata features, next to a slick design, the hip trademarked slogan “Making Data Social”, as it aims to make government data open to new audiences and constituencies.

At the heart of this movement is the concept of open data, making raw government data readily accessible, in a form that maximizes comprehension, interactivity, participation, and sharing.

At Socrata, they call this emerging phenomenon “social data discovery”, as they offer a comprehensive set of online solutions for delivering social data discovery on government data sites.
