    1. 1. FP7‐INFRASTRUCTURES‐2011‐2, RI-283700FOSSCOMM 2013, April 20-21ENGAGE Workshop on Open Public DataHarris Alexopoulos, cPhDUniversity of the AegeanInformation Systems Laboratory
    2. 2. What we are going to see today…?0 (Open Public Data) || (Public Sector Information) || (OpenGovernment Data)0 What is it ?0 What is its importance ?0 What does exist out there ?0 The ENGAGE Contribution - open collaborative platform0 Value proposition0 Components0 Platform0 Communities Contribution0 Requesting your feedback0 Run a usability test0 Bubs reporting for BETA version
    3. 3. What is Open Data ?0 Open data is the idea that certain data should be freelyavailable to everyone to use and republish as theywish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or othermechanisms of control0 All EU Public Sector bodies are advised to provide Public SectorInformation as Open Data (the PSI Directive, 2003/2008)
    4. 4. Why is Open Data important ?0 Organises public knowledge0 Supports transparency / fights against corruption0 Can motivate citizens to collaborate in governance0 Can contribute to better democratic processes andevidence-based decision making0 Provides data to other sciences for solving problems0 Gives ideas for new services and start-ups to citizensand SME’s
    5. 5. Can you give us some good examples ?0 Organises public knowledge : data.gov (UK)0 Leads to better, new services : data.gov (US)0 Supports transparency: diavgeia.gr (GR)0 Can motivate citizens: toronto.ca (CA)0 Fights against corruption : ipaidabribe.com (IN)0 Can contribute to better democracy: opengov (GR)0 Gives ideas for start-ups: Open Data Institute (UK)0 Provides data to science for solving complex problemsof the society: ENGAGE (EU)
    6. 6. The 5 model for open data★make PUBLIC stuff available on the Web(whatever format) under an open license★★make it available as structured data (e.g., Excelinstead of image scan of a table)★★★use non-proprietary formats(e.g., CSV instead of Excel)★★★★use URIs to denote things, so that peoplecan point at your stuff★★★★★ link your data to other data to provide context
    7. 7. And, beyond 5 Stars ?0 Provide enough metadata for allowing others to find your opendata0 Give a clear “open licensing” for allowing reuse of informationwithout legal burdens0 Provide visualisations of open and linked data0 But most importantly … provide your data as a service
    8. 8. The ENGAGE “Two-way” Open Data Usage ScenariosDelivering Public Sector Data to Researchers and CitizensDelivering Open Data Needs and guidelines to Public Sector Organisations
    9. 9. An Open Data Platform generic architectureUser InterfaceApplicationInterface (forsystems)Various Apps(PC & mobile)Data Curation(annotation,linking, formats)DataVisualisationData LinkingData AcquisitionUIData AcquisitionAPIDirectories ofsourcesAcquisitionProcessingProvision
    10. 10. "The problems that we havecreated cannot be solvedat the level of thinkingthat created them"Albert EinsteinAnd, not to forget:
    11. 11. Create your community(ies) with members of mutualinterestsEach community will be able to increase the value ofits data sets by applying their own perspectives basedon its unique needsSimilar data may be out there – but you never getlost…Upload your work and share it with your communityFind other valuable for your work data sets uploadedby your community (Collaborate / Exchange / Ask /Provide)Combine their results with yours – make new datasets
    12. 12. Search in all diverse and dispersed data sources in EUsupported by ENGAGE (metadata interconnection)Find your target data sets in whatever level (Lee’s 5-stars system)Be able to transform your datasets keeping thevaluable information with the ENGAGE external tools(GoogleRefine, Scrapperwiki etc.)See your results through visualisation toolsStructure your data according to your needs – controlall the levels of your dataset (metadata, vocabulariescreation, uploading, format)Refine existing datasets by (metadata enrichment,export the already shaped vocabularies)
    13. 13. Requesting your feedback…0 The ENGAGE BETA platform0 Usability Test0 Bugs Reporting
    14. 14. eGovernance Research is about oursustainable future:It is not enough to “do the things right”… we have to “do the right things”
