  • YOUR DATA. OUR DATA.Nik GarkushaOpenHalton | Microsoft Canada
  • By Day – run Open Source strategy & Open Gov initiatives at Microsoft CanadaBy Night – I run a community organization OpenHalton, helping to bringOpen Data to the Halton RegionIn both of these world I spend a lot of time working on Open Government….
  • After all, what motivates people to give up their personal time on weekends to attend Hackathons & CodeFestsTo spend evenings and nights building Open Gov applications?
  • BUILD STUFFto make the Data easier to understand by an Average Joeto find insights, to learn, and to better our society the processSo, I’ve divided the STUFF we like to do into 3 categories:
  • Like WhereDidItGo project by OpenDataBC that helps to visualize how BC’s taxes are being spent, orOpenHamilton project to visualize the Map of 2011 Federal Election results in Hamilton East Stoney Creek. (Color-coded by victor of polls)
  • Or visualizeCrime in San Farncisco as Streetlights and make AWESOME 3D projections of crime data:Prostitution NarcoticsVandalism –Or the way I like to call it:Sex, Drugs and RockNRoll data in 3DDoug McCune / http://dougmccune.com/blog
  • Or London’s eatsure that mashes up Restaurant & Food Inspection information
  • APIs’ enable simple apps like WARDREP:A way to identify your local representative & access their Social media info
  • APIs’ enable simple apps like WARDREP:A way to identify your local representative & access their Social media info
  • Add value
  • Like the LED heads-up display at JP Licks ice cream in Boston –Shows bus arrival / departure times to help customers time their purchases – and for the business to time their next batch of treatsThese are things that are possible, and Here are some ideas on how you can help:
  • The infamous VanTrash project that transformed into ReCollect – a service to remind you of your garbage & recycling days – across multiple devicesSends you SMS, email and even calls your phone
  • Revisit your city website Terms of Use and Disclaimers Do you really need to issue a written permission before someone can link to your site?Why wouldn’t you want us to help make your site more popular, your data more useful?
  • Many municipalities have passionate love affairs with PDFWe know it supposed to preserve fidelity and integrity of documentsBut it really makes it difficult to extract useful dataSo please resist the temptation to print / scan / post documentshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/mikebaird/4264611133/
  • Organic crowdsourcingExtends to gov20City of nanaimo, opendatabc, nanaimo IT workers - part of Relying on citizen communities requires knowing how to:Empowering the culture of these communities (foster communities)Hosting hackathons, F&B and venue --Socially – specific thingsSense – making
  • And finally, give us some data to work with We’re buried under a pile of unnecessary steps to scrape and scrub the dataStart with low hanging fruit like simple reporting & GIS data: ward boundaries, geocoded bus stops, etcHelp us Help You….
