OGPNews's curator insight, August 6, 2013 3:01 PM

Two really interesting examples about the challenges (and ultimately success) of actually using open data when you're not a programmer, or don't have all the skills analysts do.

 

The author concludes that there is "still a long, long way for agencies to go with open data. Right now the data released around the countries by state and local jurisdictions is often hard to match up, being in different formats, collected in different ways, presented in different ways and often is not directly comparable from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Federally there's not the same issue, however different agencies use different geographic areas, different terminology and different formats, again, for releasing data.

However there are now many tools online which can help make some of this imperfect public data more usable and useful - and you no longer need to be a programmer to do it."
