  • (think of it like a storefront where you have to sell your organization's data) Expect public praise, criticism, requests for assistance, and other unsolicited feedback - that is part of the point. (e.g. social media, data standards, commenting, OpenID, etc.)
  • • The data you publish on your /Open pages should be easily discoverable by outside parties. Publish an inventory of the datasets you’re publishing along side any relevant meta-data (update schedule, file size, file format, contact info, etc…) in a machine readable JSON or XML file. Create a /Open/data.xml file that updates as you publish new data.To the extent possible, use standards for publishing data on your /Open pages. When publishing a schedule, use the hCal or iCal format. When publishing contact information, use the vCard or hCard format. And when publishing tabular data (like spreadsheets, etc) use a parseable option like CSV or TSV.
  • OpenPublish is a Drupal semantic publishing platform. It consists of Drupal, and Install profile, and a number of Modules that we have combined to provide a great starting point for publishers filled with best practices from our experience. There is nothing you could not build yourself, but we have combined things you would likely want to safe you a few (or few hundred) hours. Save a newspaper.

    • 1. Developing /open Agency Sites Using Open Source Drupal for the Open Government Directive Prepared & Presented by Jeff Walpole, CEO
    • 2. Why Use Open Source for OGD? About Phase2 Technology <ul><li>Open Data + Open Source ≠ Open Government, but… </li></ul><ul><li>Open Data + Open Source ≠ Open Government, but… </li></ul><ul><li>Open Data + Open Source = a great starting point </li></ul><ul><li>Consider: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Openess </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Time to Deliver </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Community </li></ul></ul>
    • 3. Tech Requirements of OGD About Phase2 Technology <ul><li>Every government agency will be required to create a presence at www.agency.gov/open that includes many things, but the big things that matter now are: </li></ul><ul><li>Use of “modern technology” / best practices </li></ul><ul><li>Open data sets (at least 3 meaningful data sets to start) </li></ul><ul><li>Published Open Government Plan </li></ul><ul><li>FOIA Plan and Information </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanisms for public feedback and input </li></ul><ul><li>Downloadable/machine readable copies of virtually everything you can (make your point loud and clear) </li></ul>

    • 5. OGD = opportunity ≠ burden 8 Elements of Open Data <ul><li>/open is a place to serve the public not the agency. </li></ul><ul><li>/open is a place to demonstrate government can follow good practices for web 2.0 collaboration and sharing </li></ul><ul><li>/open is an aggregation point for citizens to look for certain information - some of it can exist elsewhere (e.g. FOIA site/section or Data.gov) – that is okay! </li></ul><ul><li>/open pages should be pro-active. If they dont make you share it yet, they will so set the stage early. </li></ul><ul><li>/open should be preparing your agency to be &quot;scored&quot; - lots of people, not least the administration will do this. </li></ul><ul><li>/open should be preparing your agency to serve data in more forward looking ways (APIs, Fed dashboard integration, etc.) </li></ul>
    • 6. Open Government Data Principles 8 Elements of Open Data 5. Machine processable : Data is reasonably structured to allow automated processing. 6. Non-discriminatory : Data is available to anyone, with no requirement of registration. 7. Non-proprietary : Data is available in a format over which no entity has exclusive control. 8. License-free : Data is not subject to any copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret regulation. Reasonable privacy, security and privilege restrictions may be allowed. Compliance must be reviewable. 1. Complete : All public data is made available. Public data is data that is not subject to valid privacy, security or privilege limitations. 2. Primary : Data is as collected at the source, with the highest possible level of granularity, not in aggregate or modified forms. 3. Timely : Data is made available as quickly as necessary to preserve the value of the data. 4. Accessible : Data is available to the widest range of users for the widest range of purposes.

    • 7. Straightforward Steps to Publish Government Data <ul><li>Step 1: Publish well structured raw data </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: Create an online catalog of the raw data (complete with documentation) so people can discover what has been posted. </li></ul><ul><li>Step 3: Make the data both human- and machine-readable </li></ul>8 Elements of Open Data Source: Publishing Open Government Data W3C Working Draft 8 September 2009
    • 8. /Open: behind the scenes 8 Elements of Open Data <ul><li>Government agencies have unique specific challenges that must be carefully managed and addressed before data can get onto the web including : </li></ul><ul><li>Security </li></ul><ul><li>Privacy </li></ul><ul><li>FOIA </li></ul><ul><li>Records management </li></ul><ul><li>Accessibility (Section 508) </li></ul><ul><li>Accuracy </li></ul><ul><li>Various Regulations (PRA, etc.) </li></ul>
    • 9. OGD & FOIA 8 Elements of Open Data <ul><li>They want: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Your process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your plan </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your contacts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your stats (extra credit) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>They do not ask for another site, existing resources can be pulled under the /open umbrella </li></ul><ul><li>The Directive also asks for similar information about how your comply with congressional requests </li></ul>

    • 11. So How Do You Get Started? 8 Elements of Open Data
    • 12. /Open Concept Site 8 Elements of Open Data <ul><li>/open is an open source technology concept we designed to prepare a simple approach to open government data and communications through a templated installation of Drupal. </li></ul><ul><li>How it is being developed? From our work with related open government efforts, we’ve developed a framework and process for implementing sites that are compliant and forward-thinking about OGD. </li></ul><ul><li>Why? Because open technology can only be used to accomplish OGD goals if it’s done correctly, responsibly, and with minimal burden on agencies. </li></ul><ul><li>Who will use it? Government agency technology reps required to comply with the OGD. </li></ul><ul><li>To accomplish what? Immediate help with compliance, but also proactive commitment to open government shared through open technology </li></ul>
    • 13. Why Our /open Concept Helps The Big Picture – What We Use <ul><li>Using proprietary, closed software in your efforts to show how &quot;open&quot; your government agency is just doesn't make sense. Now, we need a solution that is… </li></ul><ul><li>Ready to go to get you compliant on time with a templated approach to not missing key elements of the OGD </li></ul><ul><li>Implements site requirements using best practices, not quick fixes </li></ul><ul><li>Sets the right path to promote open government for future work, updates, data sets, collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>Makes it easy to update, change, publish, follow (RSS) </li></ul><ul><li>Provides a collaborative environment for citizen participation </li></ul><ul><li>Built/managed on a sensible infrastructure  </li></ul>
