The Socrata Open Data API (SODA) is not an open standard in the usual sense – it was developed by a commercial company and the API is not managed through a collaborative process. However, Socrata provides good documentation, and the fact that it is used in several large cities in the United States makes it relevant.


Socrata’s data platform continues to grow in importance, and its API is a key source of open data for many cities.
