Coordinating Open Technology among Public Agencies

The Civic Commons Wiki is a collaborative encyclopedia documenting best-practices and open standards for file formats, APIs, agile development processes, open source software, and supporting policies and licenses in the civic sector.

Civic Commons was originally a partnership between OpenPlans and Code for America. As of 2015, neither organization is affiliated with Civic Commons - it is an entirely community run resource.
