Open Data values

Jul 17, 2022

Please don’t think of this as a lecture. This is not just a talk or a workshop. It’s an experience and an exploration into the values of OpenData, and you are all take part in it!

Open data can be defined as “any data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone – subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike”

Why publish open data? We have seen in many cases across the world that open data has had an impact on innovation, education and government accountability. Open Data also helps drive economic growth by making available vast amounts of valuable information for private sector use in creating new products and services (e.g., location-based services). It also helps achieve greater transparency in government operations so citizens have greater trust in their governments’ decision making processes.

Analyze open-data.

It is important to analyze open-data for quality before you make use of it. It is a good idea to do this at the beginning of your project so that you can be sure that any results are valid and accurate. We have taken the lead into analyzing various sources of Open Data from national and regional governments within Croatia and Germany. Join us in sharing our experiences and connect with the organizations producing the data.
