What is Open Data?

Open data is VA data that is freely available to the public. It is a by-product of the work the VA does for Veterans, and is not personal data (names, addresses, birthplace, etc…). The idea of open data is that public data should be easily accessible and usable by anyone to create products like web or mobile apps, infographics, or stories - the sky is really the limit.

For years, government data has made it possible for innovators and entrepreneurs to create products of value for the American people (if you have ever used a GPS you have benefited from one of these products). We want to keep this tradition going.

So go on, explore some of our public data--innovate, create, and make sure to give us your feedback.
