In NYC, we're wondering what forums and web boards do open data professionals use to answer questions around open data?

CartoDB promotes the GIS Stack Exchange. BetaNYC has a spreadsheet listing NYC related email lists and websites.

    I recommend Open Data Stack Exchange, the question and answer site for developers, researchers, and anyone else interested in open data. But you probably already know that one ;)

    Also, your "GIS Stack Exchange" link actually points to Open Data Stack Exchange.

    Could you please detail your requirements, especially what you need that is not already offered by Open Data Stack Exchange? Thanks! Jan 20 '15 at 8:54
  • Nicolas I'm looking for forums that help people understand open data. This site is good but isn't great nor perfect.

    @noneck Suggestions for improvement are always welcome on Open Data meta.

This one obviously. I also use http://reddit.com/r/opendata, and more recently the Open Knowledge Foundation's forums (http://discuss.okfn.org/) but that's for a project specific to them so I can't vouch for it as being good for general discussions or questions.


National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting, mailing list NICAR is an oldie and a goodie. http://www.ire.org/resource-center/listservs/archives/
