luiy's insight:

The Open Data Research network.

 

Governments, civil society organisations and companies across the world are actively engaging with open data: publishing and using datasets to promote innovation, development and democratic change.

 

The Open Data Research network has been established to connect researchers from across the world working to explore the implementation and impact of open data initiatives. It is a joint project of IDRC and the Web Foundation, and is seeking to develop wider partnerships over the coming year.

 

The network currently hosts the 'Exploring the Emerging Impacts of Open Data in Development Countries (ODDC)' programme.

The open source data portal software
luiy's insight:

CKAN is open source, free software. This means that you can use it without any license fees, but more importantly, when you choose CKAN for your catalog you are also ensuring that you retain all rights to the data and metadata you enter, giving you freedom to move it elsewhere or manipulate it with your own tools without restriction.


There are lots of different open source licenses (you can find them at http://opensource.org) – CKAN is licensed specifically under the terms of the Affero GNU GPL v3.0. One of the strengths of the open source model is in the communities that form around free software products. The CKAN community is no different, and is arguably one of the strongest open data communities in the world. Together, the CKAN community has a wealth of knowledge and expertise that other people using the CKAN software can draw on. The Open Knowledge Foundation draw on and contribute to this rich resource to help us drive CKAN product development. - See more at: http://ckan.org/developers/about-ckan/#sthash.nY6V2GU7.dpuf

#Opendata Compass. What type the companies use which agencies data? | #GovLab | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
The Open Data 500 is the first comprehensive study of U.S. companies that use open government data to generate new business and develop new products and services.
luiy's insight:

Study Goals

Provide a basis for assessing the economic value of government open data Encourage the development of new open data companies
Foster a dialogue between government and business on how government data can be made more useful


The Govlab’s Approach

The Open Data 500 study is conducted by the GovLab at New York University with funding from the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation. The GovLab works to improve people’s lives by changing how we govern, using technology-enabled solutions and a collaborative, networked approach. As part of its mission, the GovLab studies how institutions can publish the data they collect as open data so that businesses, organizations, and citizens can analyze and use this information.


Next Steps

The GovLab is now planning to use this study’s findings to convene a series of roundtables between government agencies and businesses that use their data to help improve the processes and priorities for data release. The Department of Commerce has committed to participate in the first discussion; other federal Departments have expressed an intent to participate in future roundtables.

In addition to our work in the U.S., we are now in discussions with representatives of several national governments and international organizations about the potential to replicate the Open Data 500 study in other countries.

luiy's insight:

As part of the “Open Government Data Switzerland” project, the Swiss Federal Archives and their project partners are operating a central pilot portal providing access to open data from the Swiss authorities (“open government data” or OGD). The pilot portal was launched on 16 September 2013 and is expected to remain online until the end of 2014. The authorities involved in the project are supplying some of their already accessible data for use in the pilot portal. These include a wide variety of data records, such as Swiss municipal boundaries, population statistics, up-to-date camera images of weather in Switzerland, historical documents and a directory of Swiss literature.

The Observatory - The Governance Lab | #opendata #opengob | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
Societal institutions at all levels have begun experimenting with innovative practices to collaborate and co-create solutions with citizens. However, we still have a limited conceptual understanding of what opening governance through institutional innovation means and what its impacts may be. Nor is there a systemic effort to capture current practices and what is known on […]
luiy's insight:

In essence, the Observatory functions as a “knowledge broker,” acting as an intermediary between the increased need for knowledge and the growing body of information on the practice and impact of opening governance. Toward that end, the Observatory seeks to curate information from a wide variety of sources, structure this content in an intelligent manner, and present it in accessible ways.

#OpenData Institute | Moscow node | #opengob #datajournalism | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:
Russia’s Open Government is an initiative launched by the Russian Government in order to consolidate efforts to enhance the transparency and accountability of all the governmental structures. Two of its key priorities are encouraging the publication of Open Data and building the single Open Data Portal. Council on Open Data is a special-purpose governmental body at the Governmental Committee on Openness, under the auspices of which government representatives, as well as civil and citizen leaders determine Russia’s agenda in the area of Open Data. The Council builds the road-map of data opening according to G8 Charter and functions as a communicative platform that helps formulate Ministries’ priorities in ranging the urgency of publishing most demanded data packages.

 

EducationOpen Data School is an educational platform launched by NGO Infoculture and supported by Russia’s Open Government. It organises regular offline lectures and seminars for journalists, citizen activists, government officials and programmers, as well as everybody who wants to know how to work with open data. These lectures are free of charge and their materials, including videos, transcripts and presentations, are published at the School’s website under an open license. DataDrivenJournalism.ru is a Russian-language learning project created as a totally independent volunteer initiative and aimed at sharing knowledge and skills regarding data driven journalism and generally data processing. In its ‘static’ part, it provides a bunch of tutorials and walkthroughs, both original and translated, of different difficulty levels, which can be used by anyone anytime. It also provides an opportunity for interactive learning by organising so called ‘data expeditions’. The term was borrowed from OKF’s School of Data initiative. The idea is based on the project-oriented peer-to-peer learning approach developed and successfully applied by such initiatives as the abovementioned School of Data and P2P University. Data expeditions organised by DataDrivenJournalism.ru take place online and are absolutely free of charge. Its first data expedition was launched in July 2013 and revealed a huge potential of this learning format. The next expedition starts in December 2013.

#OpenData Barometer Data

#OpenData Barometer Data | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

The Open Data Barometer takes a multidimensional look at the current adoption level of open data policy and practice around the world. Three main categories are considered as part of the barometer:

 

- Readiness - identifies how far a country has in place the political, social and economic foundations for realising the potential benefits of open data. The Barometer covers the readiness of government, entrepreneurs and business, and citizen and civil society. 

 

- Implementation - identifies the extent to which government has published a range of key datasets to support innovation, accountability and more improved social policy. The barometer covers 14 datasets split across three clusters to capture datasets commonly used for: securing government accountability; improving social policy; and enabling innovation and economic activity. 

 

- Emerging impacts - identifies the extent to which open data has been seen to lead to positive political, social and environment, and economic change. The Barometer looks for political impacts – including transparency & accountability, and improved government efficiency and effectiveness; economic impacts – through supporting start-up entrepreneurs and existing businesses; and social impacts – including environmental impacts, and contributing to greater inclusion for marginalised groups in society. 

 

These factors have been combined onto a Radar chart, this represents the countries barometer.

Special Issue: Community Informatics and Open Government Data I #opendata #opengob

In many countries across the world, discussions, policies and developments are actively emerging around open access to government data. It is believed that opening up government data to citizens is critical for enforcing transparency and accountability within the government. Open data is also seen as holding the potential to bring about greater citizens' participation, empowering citizens to ask questions of their governments via not only the data that is made openly available but also through the interpretations that different stakeholders make of the open data. Besides advocacy for open data on grounds of democracy, it is also argued that opening government data can have significant economic potential, generating new industries and innovations.

Policy 2.0: theory and practice MUNICIPAL INNOVATION LAB | #opengob @gquaggiotto

Policy 2.0: theory and practice MUNICIPAL INNOVATION LAB David Osimo Director – Open Evidence #citylabodessa 16/10/2013

luiy's insight:

It’s a great event, in the beautiful Hub Odessa, where local municipalities and civil society organizations develop open government apps in two days.

 

While mentoring these groups, I encountered some ambiguity about the difference between traditional e-government projects and government 2.0 initiatives.

 

I have therefore come up with a kind of a template process for developing 2.0 apps, which is useful when raising awareness among people who are less aware about gov 2.0.

 

The steps are:

Define the problem well. As @gquaggiotto said, the problem must be specific, evidence-based and concrete for citizens. Generic ideas like “providing all the information you need in one place” are not well defined enough.Analyse thoroughly what is the potential input of citizens to solve this problems, using the six things model. Also analyse how government data could help solve this problem. For instance, if the problem is faster detection of holes in the street, citizens can provide real time information about them (à la fixmystreet), and government can open up the workflow for work implementation (when the reparation is planned etc).Design for engagement, addressing not only the technology but the fundamental design features (anonymity, gamification, publicity, moderation…) – see slide 28 and 38 below

As part of an ongoing effort to build a knowledge base for the field of opening governance, the GovLab Wiki provides a collaborative repository of information and research at the nexus of technology, governance and citizenship. Every two weeks, The GovLab Blog will publish a snapshot of recent additions posted to the wiki. The following is a summary […]
luiy's insight:

Highlights

 

Our latest updates to the wiki focus on platforms for engaging the crowd, finding and engaging expertise and innovating at the local level – from improved hyperlocal city news to reducing strain on hospital emergency rooms.


• Tools for collaboration, like GitHub, have exploded in popularity over the course of the last four years – both in terms of active users and engagement on the platforms by those users.


• Crowdsourcing is increasingly being used a tool for addressing public problems and needs. SeeClickFix, for example, is helping local governments intelligently address problems affecting their citizens, and, perhaps surprisingly, these citizen-identified problems are being addressed in large numbers. Neighbor.ly, on the other hand, provides local governments with a platform for raising funding for public projects with demonstrated importance to citizens.


• Tools for identifying and engaging individuals with specific skills or interests – whether in terms of job experience, like LinkedIn, Futures.inc and oDesk; charitable interests, like Catchafire; or academic research focus, like ResearchGate – are becoming more prevalent, demonstrating the growing interest in such abilities across sectors.


• Tools for providing hyperlocal information, like EveryBlock, and personally relevant data, like Propellor Health can help improve citizens’ use of public services ranging from emergency rooms to community cultural centers.

#BigData vs #OpenData - Mapping It Out | #OpenGob

#BigData vs #OpenData - Mapping It Out | #OpenGob | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
Confused by Open Data, Big Data, and Open Government? This Venn diagram explains it all.
luiy's insight:

As I’ve worked on my upcoming book, Open Data Now – to be published by McGraw-Hill on January 10 – I’ve had to think through and explain how Open Data, Big Data, and Open Government are related to each other. Lately I’ve seen a number of others, like the authors of the new McKinsey Open Data report (see page 4), try to map the territory in similar ways. The Open Data community is producing a lot of Venn diagrams these days, with a lot of colorful overlapping circles. (Some also deal with the use of Personal Data, but that’s one circle too many for me.)

 

For my own contribution to the discussion, I’m proposing the model shown here. To all Open Data wonks: Please take a look, comment, and add your own ideas. We’re at a stage where we need to define more precisely what we’re talking about. This may help.

 

My starting point is the evolving understanding of these three areas. Big Data essentially describes very large datasets, but that’s a somewhat subjective judgment that depends on technology: today’s Big Data may not seem so big in a few years when data analysis and computing technology improve. Open Government is a combination of ideas: it includes collaborative strategies to engage citizens in government; government releasing data about its own operations, like federal spending data; and government releasing data that it collects on issues of public interest, such as health, environment, and different industries.

luiy's insight:

In the four years since the U.S. government created data.gov, the first national repository for open data, more than 400,000 datasets have become available online from 175 agencies like the USDA, the Department of Energy, and the EPA. Governments all over the world have taken steps to make their data more transparent and available to the public. But in practice, much of that data--accessible as spreadsheets through sites like data.gov--is incomprehensible to the average person, who might not know how to wrangle huge data sets. Never-ending tables mean next to nothing to me, even if I know that they might be hiding some interesting relationship within their numbers, like how income stacks up with happiness.

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?
luiy's insight:

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.

As the Open Government Partnership summit opens in London, take a look at the global picture with some data downloads
luiy's insight:

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.
