As of July 1, 2016, local government agencies in California are required to publish an inventory of all the "enterprise systems" they use to store primary records or information on the public. These catalogs not only name the databases, but the type of data they collect and store, the name of the software used, and the vendor. These new requirements open all kinds of new possibilities for open-data innovators and privacy watchdogs alike.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Sunlight Foundation, and the Data Foundation are teaming up for a four-hour session to sweep through California cities and counties, large and small, and other local agencies to collect these catalogs.
