Learning Resources

on the Maryland

Open Data Portal

Introduction

We put together this collection of resources that we have available here on the Open Data Portal. Previously we had this document which lists and links to the resources but we also wanted to make a version of it that is a bit more visual.
If you need something from the Open Data Portal, the Open Data Policy and Standards documentation is the place to start since it describes what we do as well as why, and how we do it.

Training Videos

Matthew from the Open Data team put together these training videos on the State's You Tube channel.
Topics include Getting Started by filtering data, Visualizing data, a Step by Step guide, in-depth visualizations, uploading data (State Employee's Only), Georeferencing data for upload. The page also includes links to Tyler Technologies documentation for these topics and more.
