Citadel on the Move: Why standards matter - presentation at #OKCon 2013

  1. 1. Citadel On the Move: Why standards matter Andrew Stott Expert Adviser, Citadel on the Move formerly Director, data.gov.uk OKCon 2013 17 Sep 2013 @dirdigeng andrew.stott@dirdigeng.com
  2. 2.  EU-funded project  City-level Open Data from Manchester, Ghent, Athens, Issy and other EU cities  Mobile applications for tourism and transport  Open source templates for further adaption  Applications should “just work” “anywhere” Citadel On The Move
  3. 3.  Public and road transport information  Museums, hotels, restaurants, toilets etc.  Festivals, exhibitions, presentations, etc.  Detailed descriptions of each  'Near-me' functionality using geo-location  Accepts QR codes Transport, Points of Interest and Events
  4. 4. Citadel On The Move Application Flow  Application senses where it is  Application locates data repository for city  Application searches repository for type of data it needs  Application obtains metadata to interpret the data  Application uses Open Commons to build strategy and tool chain to use the data  Application access the data and displays it Then it’s the user’s turn
  5. 5. The challenge for licensing & standards  At “develop time” neither the developer nor the application know whose data they are going to use  Design goal is ‒ to make acquisition of new data automatic and programmatic ‒ not to have to maintain/refresh/revise the core application to incorporate a new city  Therefore the data source has to describe the data and how it can be used in a way that the existing application can understand 5
  6. 6. What this means for licensing & standards  A dataset’s data structure, semantics and licence needs to machine-interpretable  Not necessarily one standard – but not one standard per city either  Standards for the same sort of data from different jurisdictions more important (to us) than common standards within a city.  EU expectation of national governments developing their own licences & standards does not help us  A standard for standards and licenses? 6
