Ever try to get an GIS map out of LCOG for a community public interest project?

GavinNewsome wrote:The new strategy has seen early successes. Our first of its kind Twitter-311 service is solving San Franciscans’ problems with a tweet or text. Last week, we announced plans to build on this by opening 311 to developers. City agencies are embracing social media to interact with residents and share information. Our one stop clearinghouse for government data, DataSF.org is providing more than 100 datasets from a range of city departments.

Our effort to improve access to city data has led to the creation of new services that are now featured in the DataSF App Showcase.

There is an interactive crime map with San Francisco Crimespotting, EcoFinder, an iPhone app that helps residents recycle, and a new section of EveryBlock that gives a detailed break down of what people are asking government for by block, neighborhood, zip code and day.
