  16. 16. Ordinary day in the near future Hmm.. at the moment they are planning to do some changes to the land use plan of this area.. Interesting should I participate? •  Mitä jo on tehty unelman saavuttamiseksi I see.. This brandnew bicycle •  Mitä seuraavaksi tehtäisiin by the City corridor was decided x.x.20xx Council and budget was xx euros.. I´ll send positive feedback!
  17. 17. Open Ahjo – Use cases for the data Make it easier for citizens, politicians and civil servants to have a dialogue via social media A:Today we are handling new bicycle-road case xx-yy-zz Q: Could you tell me more about this case? A: Sure! Realtime access to local and relevant decision topics: ”What is being decided in my neighborhood?” Encouraging citizen participation: ”City is building a new library here in 2016. I could tell them my ideas on how to spend the budget” Helsingin kaupungin aineistopankki/Lauri Mannermaa
  18. 18. “Our dream is that every public agenda, every euro and any public issue could be easily analyzed, visualized, understood and contributed to by the citizens in advance.”
  19. 19. HRI won 100 000 € to make this dream a reality!
  20. 20. How we will spend the EUR 100.000 •  Open more data and develop interoperability of the different datasets to match with Open Ahjo •  Work with various users in creating real-life use cases for the data •  Encourage the creation of prototype applications and visualizations that showcase the usage of the data •  Disseminate learnings so others can replicate it Examples of datasets to match with Open Ahjo: •  •  •  •  •  •  •  Population statistics and estimates Administrative boundaries City financial data City service point data Real estate and land use data Environmental data City issue reporting data
  21. 21. Discussion topics: •  What do you think about about our dream – i.e. will it really enhance democracy? •  Your advice to us for implementing this? •  Anything similar going on in your city – could we collaborate?
  22. 22. THANK YOU! Tanja Lahti & Ville Meloni
