California's Government Operations Agency (GovOPs) announced Monday that it has launched the second phase of its open data portal project centralizing open data in the state of California.

New data sets from the Department of Transportation, State Water Resources Control Board and Department of Finance are now available on https://greengov.data.ca.gov/, the agency said.

On Friday the State Water Board hosted a data fair and kicked off its inaugural Water Dive. Data-centered events focused on fostering transparency and collaboration within the Water Boards, state and local agencies, and the public.

GovOps launched the open data portal with the CA GreenGov Challenge code-a-thon in October 2015. In building the statewide open data portal, the agency intends to federate data from other existing websites maintained by the Health and Human Services Agency, Franchise Tax Board and other state entities.
