  • 2A: LinkedGov: Filling in the Gaps

    by Hadley Beeman

    The Data's not enough; we need stuff around it. Government datasets are often published with budget codes, cost centre codes, and other quirks in need of explanation -- but without that explanation. The answers live with the civil servants, local government officers, and statisticians who work with those datasets. This project will set up a system for those with the answers to easily input this metadata into published government datasets. We will then make those improved datasets searchable, providing APIs for apps and visualisations and a simple web-based search tool that should be an everyday resource for those in government, research, education, community activities, or anyone curious about their country. This volunteer-led project aims to raise the profile of government opendata and transparency by: improving the quality of available data helping citizens to access the information they want building a search tool which is useful for those in government, encouraging them to publish high-quality data involving many people from the developer, government, research, education, academic and volunteer communities.
