The City of Medicine Hat Open Data Initiative allows the City to leverage the expertise available in the community to creatively use existing information. Open data enables research and IT communities to create innovative and sustainable solutions.
Medicine Hat has and will continue to provide availability to open data through this innovative approach and design of the open data catalogue and by engaging residents and the global open data community to use this information and develop applications that benefit the community.
Two mobile apps have been created using City data and they can be downloaded below:
You'll never again lose track of your garbage day with a collection schedule customized for your zone.
