DKAN is an open source open data platform with a full suite of cataloging, publishing and visualization features that allows organizations to easily share data with the public.

workflow management interface

Easy to use and powerful data publishing workflows

DKAN features an easy-to-use interface for adding data. DKAN also includes an optional Workflow module, which allows data published by content creators to be reviewed by editors before publication. DKAN allows complex workflows to be taken out of ETL and other tools and into DKAN's easy-to-use interface.

Built in visualization tools and drag and drop dashboards

DKAN is more than a data catalog. DKAN makes it easy to tell stories with your data. DKAN features built-in charts and graphs tools and drag-and-drop dashboards so you don't need to rely on outside tools to tell stories with your data. See our demo site for examples.
