Open Data in the City

There is a growing body of opinion that open data will be led by cities and towns, as the benefits from efficiencies gained and more intelligent uses of data, coupled with the environment for enhanced engagement and co-production of public service are ones that have greatest impact at a local level. As we are all aware cities can’t do this in isolation. Cities need to learn from each other and more importantly be relevant to the communities they serve by engaging with them in this process.

We are pleased to welcome James Cattell from Digital Birmingham, charged with overseeing the implementation of open data in Birmingham and Andrew MacKenzie from West Midlands Open Data Users Group and most recently the Cabinet Office’s Open Data User Group. Who will speak about Birmingham’s journey towards open data.

You can view the project progress here

[UPDATE]
Jag Goraya from Open Data Sheffield and GIST Foundation is going to let us know about open data happenings from over the Pennines.

As usual we will have news on the latest developments with open data including events and competitions

Manchester City Council are planning to run a hackahon this summer but before they set any dates they’d be interested to hear from the developer community to find if there were any particular data sets we would like to get your hands on. Someone from Manchester City Council will be at the meeting to get feedback and hopefully we can help shape the event so it is a success.
