AISP Network: Linked Information Network of Colorado (LINC)

About the Work

LINC is designed to support timely and cost-efficient research, evaluation, and analytics using integrated data from state agency, local government, and non-profit data partners. LINC is a federated model where the data providers retain control over their data, and data are only transferred to the linking hub for approved projects. The data integration and anonymization work is accomplished in OIT while the business interface with LINC data partners and requesters is supported by the Colorado Lab.

Linked Information Network of Colorado (LINC) is hosted by Colorado Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT).
