"General Information

 

Welcome to the City Dashboard! This platform shows you what is going on in Amsterdam at this moment.

The city in graphics

What is the average speed of traffic in the city? How many cultural events are going on? What are the levels of noise and what are people tweeting about? Answers to these and many other questions are featured and visualized in this dashboard of Amsterdam. Play and experiment with it, make different combinations and get to know the city real-time!

Translating data into accessible information

Citizens and (government) agencies create and collect a lot of data, which they are now opening up for reuse more and more. This dashboard makes use of the latest open data from a wide range of municipal services. By using the Linked Data API from the CitySDK project , this City Dashboard becomes easily transferable to other cities using the same interface. The CitySDK Linked Data API also makes information searchable and available on demand, enabling developers to create applications such as this dashboard.

How to use the City Dashboard

A city consists of many elements, shown on this dashboard as the following domains: transport, environment, statistics, economy, social, cultural & security. For each domain, the actual status is shown, based on blocks of 24 hours. The data is refreshed every 10 seconds. The information is captured in charts, graphs and on a map of the city. Larger dots and darker colors symbolize higher values and vice versa. On the map, you can choose which layers you want to see: from only one domain to interesting combinations and all of them together. Personalize what you are seeing and try to discover the city of Amsterdam on a whole new level!

No data available?

We aim to display all the numbers, graphics and other results in this City Dashboard as readable as possible. Since this platform collects data from different kind of sources that otherwise are stored in multiple databases, it may happen that particular data isn't available for a moment. In that case the data source is interrupted."

The open budget survey from the International Budget Partnership scores 100 countries on the availability and accessibility of key documents throughout the budgeting process – it is not enough to simply publish the final budget to get a high score. Top performers in the 2012 open budget index: New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, Sweden and Norway. Bottom of the list: Equatorial Guinea, Myanmar, Qatar, Benin, and Saudi Arabia.

The open data vision is a bold one but it will take considerable work to make a reality. What impact has it really made so far?

Our research finds that 55% of countries surveyed have open data initiatives in place, yet less than 10% of key government datasets across the world are truly open for reuse. It also found that valuable but potentially controversial datasets – such as company registers and land registers – are among the least likely to be openly released. This could be because governments want to preserve lucrative access charges, or from a desire to keep a lid on politically sensitive information, or both. However, the net effect is to severely limit the accountability, development and economic benefits of open data. The barometer ranks the UK as the most advanced country, scoring above the US (2nd), Sweden (3rd), New Zealand (4th) and Denmark and Norway (joint 5th). The leading developing country is Kenya, joint 22nd with the Czech Republic and Switzerland .

 

The barometer also highlights that strong evidence on the impacts of OGD is almost universally lacking. Few OGD programmes have yet been formally evaluated, and the majority of discussion surrounding impacts remains anecdotal. Our research asked about six kinds of OGD impact (government efficiency, transparency and accountability, environmental sustainability, inclusion of marginalised groups, economic growth, and supporting entrepreneurs) and in countries no examples of impact could be found, and on average evidence of impact was scored at just 1.7 out of 10.
