Open Data and Mind Mapping

  1. 1. Open Data and Mind Mapping (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  2. 2. Definition of Open Data Open data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and sharealike. http://opendatahandbook.org/en/what-is-open-data/ (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  3. 3. THE PROBLEM WITH OPEN DATA (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  4. 4. The problem with Open Data (1) “When released in its raw form, data is not open to the public in any meaningful sense. It is only open to a small elite of technical specialists who know how to interpret and use it, as well as to those that can afford to employ them. Providing open data uncritically in this way is therefore likely only to further advantage already privileged groups. There is a real danger of adding a new “data divide” on top of existing digital and economic divides.” http://www.computerweekly.com/opinion/The-problem-with-Open-Data (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  5. 5. The problem with Open Data (2) “that open data empowers those with access to the basic infrastructure and the background knowledge and skills to make use of the data for specific ends” http://gurstein.wordpress.com/2010/09/02/open-data-empowering-the-empowered- or-effective-data-use-for-everyone/ (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  6. 6. The problem with Open Data (3) “In my time working with the politicians and civil servants, I’ve realised that success breeds success: the best way to convince them to open data is to show an open data project that’s useful to real people. Not a catalogue or similar tool aimed at insiders, but something that’s making citizens, voters, constituents happy. Then they’ll get it.” http://radar.oreilly.com/2010/02/rethinking-open-data.html (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  7. 7. The problem with Open Data (4) “the data required to compile it is located in different sections of hundreds of different council websites. The information is presented in many different formats and many different ways, and the only way the information can be compiled for re- use is manually - a laborious affair involving finding, cutting and pasting lots of individual pieces of information published by 433 different councils.” http://data.gov.uk/blog/publishing-local-open-data-important-lessons-open-election- data-project (C) Infoseg, S.A. 2013 All Rights Reserved http://www.infoseg.com/
  8. 8. The problem with Open Data (5) • Navigation of the Open Data Web site • Too many items of data • Very little structure • Very little sense of context • No links between different data items • Navigation problems • Lack of visual clues • How to decide if you have all data • How can users solve real problems with the items of data? • How to organize such a big amount of information after download?
