Practical Advice for Open Data Managers

 


From the Guardian UK:
The US-based Center for Technology in Government has released practical advice for government managers planning or actively engaged in open data initiatives.

A white paper from the center, The dynamics of Opening Government Data, is based on findings from a year-long research project at the University of Albany (State University of New York) and aims to help organisations understand the value of open data.


Findings
Releasing government data that is relevant to both agency performance and the public interest.
Investing in strategies to estimate how different stakeholders will use the data.
Devising data management practices that improve context.
Thinking about sustainability for long-term value creation.
The recommendations are based on two case studies: public access to street construction project data in Alberta, Canada, and public access to restaurant health inspection data in New York. They include: Download the whitepaper here:
