Socrata was acquired by Tyler Technologies in 2018 and is now the Data and Insights division of Tyler. The platform is still powered by the same software formerly known as Socrata but you will see references to Data & Insights going forward.

API Changelog

Every API must change from time to time. While we strive to keep breaking changes to a minimum, some changes in behavior may affect your application. Many changes also bring new or enhanced functionality to the API.
