  • Handover to Heather Savory Chair of the Open Data User Group.
  • Handover to Jacqui
  • 14409 published, 4,100 unpublished
    231 NII datasets
    Departmental Open Data commitments
    No LII as yet published on UK Open Data hub
  • New part of data.gov.uk to evidence the demand for Open Data created by ODUG
    List shows latest requests received
    BUTTON - login to request new data
  • This is where we have captured the uses, barriers and demand for Open Data
    Perhaps we have people in the audience who have requested open data requests using the ODUG tools
    If you need data which isn’t already open you can use this mechanism to request it.
  • 7 key use rgroups of open data – largest is individuals increasingly research SMEs /start ups voluntary sectors, notice public sector (red)
    Key barriers licensing, cost and unreliability, Not quality as was always thought
    Over 9,000 citizens have now engaged with the roadmap
    > 8.5% have raised a data request to release more data
  • As we are at DCLG tonight I thought I would show the roadmap for citizens requests for DCLG data
    Also50 requests for LA data when considered together >9% request this data
    Prompted ODUG to do Business Case to PSTB to request funding to help LAs release this data.
    Hence the LA Incentive Scheme
  • There were a number of candidates for the 3 themes based on the data requests ODUG received
    However based on all the work going on across the landscape these 3 themes were not already being covered
    It gave ODUG a chance to create a minimum requirement for all 3 data sets
    To an agreed set of standards. £2,000 for the 1st 2 datasets £,3000 for the 3rd dataset £7,000 in total for all 3
  • At a local level this is a key dataset to release
    It fits well with the local agenda for Smart City data
    It also allows a national picture of facilities to be started
    It is an opportunity for businesses and community facilities to enrich the Open Data being released
  • James an his team are leading the LA Planning data work
    This is a complex dataset due to the different events which happen during the application process
    However there is a core dataset which all applications follow and this is the once we are requesting
    Like to thank James and the team for all their help to ensure that our core planning schema fits with wider work
  • Licensing is a complex area with > 90 licenses possible across a LA
    Valuable data at a local level which will help contextualise other dataset to understand patterns in our towns and cities
    The schema we have defined covers premises licensed for alcohol and/or entertainment
  • We were unsure whether there is be a need for LA to acquire additional Open Data skills to release data
    ODUG have also provided free Open Data training for staff in LA to help them release this data
    This is a voucher scheme administered by Cabinet Office
    If this applies to you and your staff we suggest you apply for these vouchers at the same time you register your intention to release the data
  • To qualify for payment under the scheme we are asking that you self certify the data you are releasing at the PILOT (RAW) level
    means extra effort went in to support and encourage feedback from people who use this open data
    Has no resource commitment on behalf of the data owner
    Commitment is only to recertify annually
  • The datasets released will be published on data.gov.uk
    a new Local hub on the home of Open Data in the UK
  • It is a pilot
    organic rather than usual mandated data collection
    It will help ODUG understand the problems and barriers in the sector to release datasets to a common standard based on a theme
    The outcomes will be evidenced and enable an new understanding of this new way of releasing data in this way
    Handover to Tim Adams from LGA to explain how to access the ODUG funding
  • The Open data User Group has selected datasets that are commonly requested. We’ve tried to make it as simple as possible for councils to provide the dataset BUT there must be sufficient data to be useful to consumers AND it must be possible for developers to aggregate meaningfully across datasets from all councils.

    So we expect them to be able to produce a single aggregated dataset for each of the three themes. They can then develop applications that make the data useful to citizens.

  • Submissions under the Scheme go through five stages, only two of which require input from the local authority.
    Application requires you to say you intend to submit
    Acceptance by the LGA comes quickly for valid organisations (English local authorities) until the money has all been allocated
    Submission requires you to say provide details of the dataset provided under the scheme
    Technical review is where the ESD team checks for compliance of the dataset with the schema
    Final acceptance by the LGA is where, following technical review, we make a payment to your council
  • All submissions are open for public review without sign in.
    Sign in to make a submission for your authority.
    Register if not already registered. It is the same registration as used by LG Inform Plus tools, including LG Inform.
  • When signed in, you can view existing submissions for your council and make new ones.
    Only one submission per theme.
    Only one person can make and update each submission for a council.
  • Submissions go through five stages to acceptance. Councils just complete the initial application and, when accepted, submit details of the dataset for one of the themes.
    Requirements for a basic level of open data certificate: https://certificates.theodi.org/overview
    LGA is likely to accept English council applications to participate in the order they arrive until all the money is allocated. If you have not submitted data within 3 months of acceptance, we may chase you up with a view to re-allocating your money if you look unlikely to submit.
    If there are issues at any stage, you will be contacted and notes will be updated.
    A submission can be reverted back from technical review to Stage 3 if there are issues.
    When everything is accepted, the LGA will make a payment into your council’s bank account.
  • Documents give an overview of the scheme, details of how to apply and full details of how to comply with each schema – including exactly what data is expected in each column of the data and if it is optional or required.

    There are a lot of columns specified, but many are optional. We just name each column so, where councils do include data, the column name is the same for all councils.
  • Here are links to the documents, supporting machine readable files and how to get help. Do email the Support team or me at any time you have a query.

    Hand back over to Heather
  • Open to the floor
    Help yourself to refreshments and you are encouraged to network
    The LGA will be posting the slides tomorrow, and you will all receive an email with a link to the slides. Please share with your colleagues
