Open Data & Records Hub Makes it Easier to Search and Access Data


Lake County has launched a new Open Data and Records Hub that makes Lake County government data easily accessible –and searchable—to a broad audience, including residents and taxpayers, enhancing transparency and accountability. Additionally, government employees can now access other departments’ data to help enhance services and drive efficiency.  The Open Data and Records Hub centralizes a wide range of data in one place from property taxes and health and recreation to transportation and government contracts and agreements. This new tool allows users to search and discover PDF maps, web mapping applications and other datasets all free of charge. The existing datasets on the Hub will consistently be updated and Lake County is exploring adding new information, including financial data.
