  • FutureEverything CIC - Not for Profit that exists that was a Festival that explored the interface between arts, culture, technology and society. Has grown into a Festival and Living Lab that has been conducting research with local universities since 2007\n
  • MCC public commitment to Open Data\n
  • From the start we decided that the Open Data Cities project would focus on the Conceptual idea of the city rather than the administrative. The population of the metropolitan region is 2.6 million people with 10 local authorities and many pan regional public bodies. Each with their own structures.\n\nAdvantages were that working with the pan-regional bodies like transportation would have greater impact, and potential market for services and applications. It would also create a safer environment for Local Authorities to dip their toes in the water.\n\nDisadvantages it meant that we were working with 10 local authorities all with their own structures and methods.\n

  • Timeline of Open Data in Manchester\n
  • There is a very engaged developer/activist community in Manchester and by working with them to create the Open Data Manchester community we were able to create a demand side case for Local Authorities to release data. The community meets every month and has developed into one that includes developers, journalists, public officials, policy people, artists, activists…\n
  • Underpinning legislation\n
  • Washington DC’s journey to open data off the back of internal organisational transformation\n
  • TrackDC - Transparency led by OCTO implemented by CIO Bryan Sivak under as part of Mayor Fenty’s leadership\n
  • Trafford Council could see how open data could help them internally. This is the predicted figure that they arrived at for Greater Manchester although this can’t be verified.\n
  • Through this process of communication business models and arguments are starting to be formed. TfGM stated at the end of 2010 that it wanted to make as much data open as it could. Citing that in the economic climate it made sense to release data such as real time bus data for people to build applications on rather than spend money on fitting passenger information displays to bus stops. The cost of a Passenger Information Display Install costs approx £1,500 per display\n
  • By releasing data interesting services are developed and new insights that are beyond the scope of public institutions are gained\n
  • Helsinki pushed forward its regional datastore\n
  • London DataStore led by Emer Coleman on behalf of the Mayor of London’s office\n
  • Digital Birmingham are adopting an Open Data Policy\n
  • NESTA Make It Local funded the development of the Birmingham Civic Dashboard\n
  • DataGM created through a partnership between FutureEverything and Trafford MBC\n
  • Releasing data\n
  • Linked data pages developed by Swirrl for Scottish Govt\n
  • Allowing easy analysis\n
  • This data is for developers and others who can then use the data to create applications and interpretations for a wider audience\n
  • Data visualised\n
  • The same data visualised differently \n
  • Ultimately the project intended to create an ecology where components feed into each other. This is starting to happen but is happening slowly. Once an ecology develops the release of data becomes more sustainable\n
  • Part of the Open Data Cities project was to create a porous interface between the city and developers/citizens. Hackdays and Grand Challenges enable the city to suggest problems and issues that may need to be tackled.\n
  • Washington DC ran an Apps for Democracy contest publicised as creating $2,300,000 of value for $50,000 investment. Although these figures were based on estimated time committed by developers\n
  • HSL/HRT the Helsinki Regional Transport Authority ran a hackathon. 700 expressions of interest, 36 apps developed. Population 1.4 million people\n
  • CitySDK project involving MCC and FutureEverything delivering a hack event in March 2013\n
