The need for common pan-European open data licensing: the case of Citadel

  1. 1. Citadel On the Move: Data Licensing Andrew Stott Expert Adviser, Citadel on the Move formerly Director, data.gov.uk Samos, Greece 2 July 2013 @dirdigeng andrew.stott@dirdigeng.com
  2. 2. • Information about the parking lots in a city • List of total/available parking places • List of places for disabled's people vehicles • 'Near-me' functionality using HTML5 geo-location feature Parking places
  3. 3. • Different categories of PoIs: museums, hotels, restaurants, etc. • Filtering function • Detailed description of each PoI • 'Near-me' functionality using HTML5 geo-location feature • QR codes with link to PoIs when outdoors Point of Interest (PoIs) in the city
  4. 4. Events in the city • Different event categories: festivals, exhibitions, presentations, etc. • Detailed description of each event: time, place, fees, transportation • 'Near-me' functionality using HTML5 geo- location feature
  5. 5. Citadel 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
  6. 6. Some features  At “develop time” neither the developer nor the application know whose data they are going to use  So no licensing info at “develop time”  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 6
  7. 7. What this means for licensing  A dataset’s licence needs to machine- interpretable ‒ Permissibility of “standard operations” ‒ Identification of “excluded” data in the dataset ‒ Attribution statement  Data providers need to publish licence “manifest”  Standard, pan-European licences would help!  If not one standard licence licence then at least a standard framework for describing the licence to a machine? 7
