Socrata Platform Supports the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) August 05, 2014

Socrata (http://www.socrata.com), a Seattle-based cloud software company focused exclusively on democratizing access to government data, today voiced its support for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), which has transformed its flagship human development report Human Development Report 2014 Sustaining Human Progress: Reducing Vulnerabilities and Building Resilience into a much more accessible, interactive online experience.

Socrata, which provides UNDP with a dynamic technology platform and robust data visualization and presentation solution, aggregating data across a large number of development indicators for over 180 countries, helped UNDP in this important digital transformation.

UNDP is showing that by opening its data and offering a more dynamic and visual interactive experience online, it can connect with a wider global audience and spark innovative new uses of human development report data from new policy research to educational games.


At the moment, UNDPs human development report data, visualizations, and country profiles are embedded in over 100,000 other sites, applications, and publications by the media, researchers, and other stakeholders.

Socrata is proud to support UNDPs ongoing and invaluable efforts to reduce poverty, build resilience, and reduce vulnerabilities among communities around the world, says Kevin Merritt, Socratas Founder and CEO. Opening the organizations human development report data also creates many new opportunities for the global development community, citizens, the media and others to contribute to this vital cause.

UNDP has partnered with Socrata to create Human Development Country Profiles. Appearing on the UNDP website, these profiles include maps, data visualizations, trend information, and data for key development indicators, with specific attention this year to issues of structural and life-cycle vulnerability.
