Open Data Development in the City of Edinburgh Council

A session at IWMW 2012 (Institutional Web Management Workshop)

Tuesday 19th June, 2012

9:00am to 9:45am

With the launch of the Scottish Digital Participation Group open data development has fresh motivation in Scotland. A number of Scottish Councils are working with open data already, and the current NESTA Make It Local Scotland project initiative is a lead innovator in supporting groweth. The City of Edinburgh Council is working closely with a number of partners to develop its approach, with a key aim to deliver real value. The talk will include:

  • Open Data in Scotland - the context for Local Government and the challenges Councils face.
  • How the City of Edinburgh Council is approaching these challenges and developing projects using open data.
  • How the Jadu system uses its API to deliver open data: case study of Litchfield District Council.
  • The NESTA 'Make It Local Scotland' initiative - how Edinburgh is using open data and code to deliver its project.
