Seven Ways to Create a Storymap | #opendata #maps #ddj | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
Evidence is Power
luiy's insight:

The above examples describe a wide range of geographical and geotemporal storytelling models, often based around quite simple data files containing information about individual events. Many of the tools make a strong use of image files as pat of the display. it may be interesting to complete a more detailed review that describes the exact data models used by each of the techniques, with a view to identifying a generic data model that could be used by each of the different models, or transformed into the distinct data representations supported by each of the separate tools.

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.

Digital Ecologies Research Partnership | #openResearch #opendata | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
The Digital Ecologies Research Partnership (DERP) is a joint initiative to promote academic inquiry into social dynamics of the web.
luiy's insight:

Launched in 2014, the Digital Ecologies Research Partnership (DERP) is a joint initiative by an alliance of community websites to promote open, publicly accessible, and ethical academic inquiry into the vibrant social dynamics of the web.

 

DERP seeks to solve two problems in the academic research space:

 

First, it is difficult for academic researchers to easily obtain data for their work beyond the confines of the largest social media platforms. DERP is a single point of contact for researchers to get in touch with relevant team members across a range of different community sites. We envision that this will lower the friction to investigating these sites in more depth, and broaden the scope of research happening within the academic community.

 

Second, it remains difficult to conduct good cross-platform analyses in academic research. By bringing a number community of sites together under a single cooperative effort, we intend to lower the friction of doing so, as well as better enable the sites themselves to coordinate with one another on supporting researchers.

 

DERP focuses on providing public data to academic researchers while facilitating an active online research community of Fellows. DERP will only support research that respects user privacy, responsibly uses data, and meets IRB approval. All research supported by DERP will be released openly and made publicly available. Partner platforms may also have additional guidelines and privacy commitments that apply to the research they support.

#Opendata, crowdsourcing, and #sharing economy tech take on new roles in disasters

#Opendata, crowdsourcing, and #sharing economy tech take on new roles in disasters | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
Sharing economy services and crowdsourced tech can help aggregate and distribute aid, housing, energy, and transportation to disaster survivors. Airbnb is one company that's stepping up.
luiy's insight:

In a disaster, figuring out what technology you have still works, how long it will work, and who knows how to use it is precious information. The idea of "disaster tech" is a vocative of that notion: what works when nothing else does? Last week, at a forum convened by the White House to share commitments from the private sector and to demonstrate data-driven innovation to helping people and disasters, I was reminded of that need.

 

In a sign of the times, the categories in the program included the "sharing economy" and survivor support, crowdsourcing, open data, and public alerts. Behind the buzzwords, what matters most about any disaster technology is whether it works (from being interoperable with existing systems to being accessible to users), and whether it improves upon existing systems used by first responders and aid workers. If sharing economy services aggregate and distribute the demands of survivors to aid, excess housing, energy, or transport capacity, they can help people in need. These outcomes aren't theoretical.

Mapping Data: A guide for making #geodata visualizations | #ddj #methods #tools | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

As an add-on to our presentation we produced two more things, that some of you out there mind find helpful too:

 

- Mappable Toolset: The number of tools to process data, make maps, interactive visualizations etc. is continuously growing. While we love new tools, this leads to a situation that makes it quite hard to keep an overview of which tools are good for a certain tasks, where to find them and how much they cost. To keep track of the tools we've used so far and as a guide for others we thus collected our toolset. Have a look at it here:English version, German version.


-  Mappable Cheat-Sheet: Making maps and other visualizations with a geospatial component is certainly not a trivial tasks. There are many pitfalls, take alone spatial reference systems as an example, that might completely mess up your visualization if you don't handle them correctly. We thus created a checklist for making geodata visualizations in (data-driven) journalism. You can find it here: English version, German version.

The Open Database Of The #Corporate World | #opendata #economy

The Open Database Of The #Corporate World | #opendata #economy | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
Free and Open Company Data on millions of companies and corporations in over 20 countries, including UK, Spain, US, ...
luiy's insight:

What is OpenCorporates?

 

OpenCorporates aims to do a straightforward (though big) thing: have a URL for every company in the world.

 

Is that all?

Well, no useful though that would be, we're also gradually importing government data relating to companies, and trying to match it to specific companies

 

Why do this?

Few parts of the corporate world are limited to a single country, and so the world needs a way of bringing the information together in a single place, and more than that, a place that's accessible to anyone, not just those who subscribe to proprietary datasets. See also the OpenCorporates Principles

 

There are quite a few countries you're missing

We've grown from 3 territories and a few million companies to over 75 jurisdictions and 55 million companies, and are working with the open data community to add more each week.

 

How can we get hold of the data?

We have a new API service, as well as our highly popular Google Refine reconciliation service (seedocumentation), and this allows access to the information as JSON or XML. If you need data in bulk, either for academic research work, for another cool open data project, or commercially, drop us an email atinfo@opencorporates.com.

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

Released: The #OpenData Era in #Health and Social Care | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it

Download the Full Report NHS England and The GovLab at New York University have jointly created a blueprint – The Open Data Era in Health and Social Care – to accelerate the use of open data in healthcare settings.


Via Yves Mulkers
luiy's insight:

The Value of Open Data: The blueprint suggests a framework to review the potential for open data in:

 

• Holding healthcare organizations and providers accountable for treatment outcomes.


• Enabling patients to make informed choices from among the healthcare options available to them.


• Improving the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of delivering healthcare.


• Improving treatment outcomes.


• Educating patients and their families and make healthcare institutions more responsive.


• Fueling new healthcare companies and innovation.

 

Need for Evidence: For all the recognition of open data’s potential, there is an urgent need for more research and actionable evidence to help guide investments and priorities. This blueprint represents a framework for a conversation on how NHS England can develop an evidence-based program to guide the investments and further research into the benefits of open data.

FTC report examines #databrokers | Consumer Information | #PersonalData #Privacy | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

For data brokers that provide marketing products, Congress should consider legislation to:

 

- Centralized Portal. Require the creation of a centralized mechanism, such as an Internet portal, where data brokers can identify themselves, describe their information collection and use practices, and provide links to access tools and opt- outs;

 

- Access. Require data brokers to give consumers access to their data, including any sensitive data, at a reasonable level of detail;


- Opt-Outs. Require opt-out tools, that is, a way for consumers to suppress the use of their data;

 

- Inferences. Require data brokers to tell consumers that they derive certain inferences from from raw data;

 

- Data Sources. Require data brokers to disclose the names and/or categories of their data sources, to enable consumers to correct wrong information with an original source;

 

- Notice and Choice. Require consumer-facing entities – such as retailers – to provide prominent notice to consumers when they share information with data brokers, along with the ability to opt-out of such sharing; and

 

- Sensitive Data. Further protect sensitive information, including health information, by requiring retailers and other consumer-facing entities to obtain affirmative express consent from consumers before such information is collected and shared with data brokers.

#OpenData Barometer Data | #opengov #dataviz | 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.

luiy's insight:

The Guardian recently published an article linking to a database of 250 million events. Sounds too good to be true, but as I'm writing a PhD on recent Russian memory events, I was excited to try it out. I downloaded the data, generously made available by Kalev Leetaru of the University of Illinois, and got going. It's a large 650mb zip file (4.6gb uncompressed!), and this is apparently the abbreviated version. Consequently this early stage of the analysis was dominated by eager anticipation, as the Cambridge University internet did its thing.

 

Meanwhile I headed over to David Masad's writeup on getting started with GDELT in python

It’s a really simple example to get users familiar with the functionality of import.io, an easy way to scrape web content via a simple interface and without having to code.

Open311 technologies use the internet to enable these interactions to be asynchronous and many-to-many. This means that several different people can openly exchange information centered around a single public issue. This open model allows people to provide more actionable information for those who need it most and it encourages the public to be engaged with civic issues because they know their voices are being heard. Yet Open311 isn’t just about this more open internet-enabled model for 311 services, it’s also about making sure the technology itself is open so that 311 services and applications are interoperable and can be used everywhere.

#OpenCorporates : How #complex are corporate structures? | #Opendata #dataviz | Public Datasets - Open Data - | Scoop.it
luiy's insight:

How complex are international corporate structures?

If you want to understand how complex multinational companies are, consider this:

 

In Hong Kong, there's a company called Goldman Sachs Structured Products (Asia) Limited. It's controlled by another company called Goldman Sachs (Asia) Finance, registered in Mauritius.

 

That's controlled by a company in Hong Kong, which is controlled by a company in New York, which is controlled by a company in Delaware, and that company is controlled by another company in Delaware called GS Holdings (Delaware) L.L.C. 

 

Which itself is a subsidiary of the only Goldman you're likely to have heard of, The Goldman Sachs Group in New York City.

That's only one of hundreds of such chains. All told, Goldman Sachs consists of more than 4000 separate corporate entities all over the world, some of which are around ten layers of control below the New York HQ.

 

Of those companies approximately a third are registered in nations that might be described as tax havens.Indeed, in the world of Goldman Sachs, the Cayman Islands are bigger than South America, and Mauritius is bigger than Africa.

These are maps of the top five banking companies in the US, and are based on publicy available data from the Federal Reserve. Read more about our data on the link at the top left.
