Our government customers are discovering how to use their data in new ways with MongoDB. City municipal services. National defense and intelligence agencies. Civilian agencies in healthcare, finance, energy, and more. They’re all doing what they could never do before.
The City of Chicago cuts crime and improves citizen welfare with a real-time geospatial analytics platform called WindyGrid. Using MongoDB, it analyzes data – like bus locations, 911 calls, and even tweets – from 30+ departments to better respond to emergencies. Learn more about how Chicago uses MongoDB.

Government Use Cases
Event Capture and Analysis. If you need to store and analyze fast-moving data, MongoDB is the right choice. It provides a platform for capturing a stream of event data and making it available for low latency access and rich querying. Perfect for cyber security, sensor data capture, or network & systems monitoring.
Crime Data Management and Analytics. MongoDB brings a fresh approach to the analysis of crime data. Old criminal record systems are often difficult to change and don’t allow for advanced use cases. With MongoDB, you can employ real-time analytics to identify offender-specific, geospatial, and other crime patterns. The City of Chicago combined crime statistics with other city data in order to reduce crime.
Citizen Engagement Platform. MongoDB brings a fresh approach to the analysis of crime data. Old criminal record systems are often difficult to change and don’t allow for advanced use cases. With MongoDB, you can employ real-time analytics to identify offender-specific, geospatial, and other crime patterns. The City of Chicago combined crime statistics with other city data in order to reduce crime. Help your constituents get the information they need to improve civic participation. Many governments have mandates to make their public data easily available to citizens. MongoDB allows you to quickly develop and iterate on platforms and public portals that can handle a wide variety of data types, metadata, and social features. The UK government uses MongoDB to make government services a pleasure for citizens to use.
Entity Catalog. Keeping track of millions or billions of entities is no simple task. It doesn’t help that a single organization might have to deal with thousands of different entity types, including physical assets like vehicles and personnel, and intangible ones like locations and information assets. MongoDB makes it easy to store the right information about any type of entity, and access that information quickly.
Healthcare Record Management. Healthcare records can be some of the most complex and rich data that governments handle. A single data set can hold some records with tens of fields and others with thousands of fields, and contain everything from patient documents to procedure information. MongoDB can help you to aggregate, store, and expose this data easily and securely.
