Governments and publicly funded initiatives generate a lot of data. That is our data, we paid for it, but most of the time it’s poorly distributed, hidden in government sites. Our Data is a project that aims to reveal that information and collect examples of use.
This site is building an overview of European initiatives and activities around Open Government Data. While working on Open Gov Data it became clear to us that there are lots of European initiatives, data sets and examples that are hard to find outside their own language area. Therefore this site aims to be a collection of pointers.
On a country by country basis we will collect and share pointers to three types of content:
- Data sets, pointers with short descriptions of what’s available;
- Initiatives, pointers to policy initiatives, competitions, barcamps. Also as examples of what you can do in your own country;
- Mashups, example applications based on open government data.
See how you can help.
