Data News & Upcoming Events
Below you will find recent news and upcoming events regarding data.iowa.gov, open data, and the use of data in government.
Socrata: Map Flyouts
Flyouts on maps will now reflect the information for all the points at that location, across all layers, and reveal stacked points using "spiderfy" animation. This will help ensure people are aware of all the information related to that specific point on the ground.
Socrata: Drag and Drop Columns
When editing datasets, users are now able to rearrange columns via drag and drop. This allows for columns to be more easily arranged in a way to make the dataset more understandable to users.

Learn more about how the federal government is trying to improve the quality of the data it collects, and tools and approaches agencies are using to make the most of their data.
Socrata: Relative Date Filters
In visualizations, you can now filter for last month, last year, or last day. This will ensure your chart or map is continually updated to display the most recently completed month, day or year.
DOM: Catalog Clean-up
As we prepare to move to our new data platform, we are reviewing data assets currently published on data.iowa.gov. We have a number of visualizations that were created using the "classic" visualizations (e.g. old way to create charts and maps). Unfortunately, these visualizations are not supported on the new platform and will need to be recreated. The charts and maps will be recreated where appropriate and ownership will be reassigned to appropriate users. We have also encountered a number of external resources that were directing public to pages that no longer exist. These data assets are being deleted.
DOM: American Community Survey
We intend to have many of the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey tables available in the new data platform. The data from these tables will be brought in using data connections available from the U.S. Census Bureau which will ensure the most current information is available for your use. If there are any specific tables your agency relies upon, please let us know.
