  12. 12. Open data and content can be freely used, modified, and shared by anyone for any purpose. opendefinition.org @sjenkinson
  13. 13. “We observed that often people think of open data as a specific ‘kind’ of data – something separate and distinct from the data they use day-to-day in their organisation or team – rather than a choice about how people publish data.” theodi.org/blog/closed-shared-open-data-whats-in-a-name @sjenkinson

  24. 24. DATA & USER EXPERIENCES
  25. 25. “How far do you live from your workplace? Chances are, you'd answer that question in minutes rather than miles. ! An hour on the bus tells us a lot more than 47 miles. That's why we made Mapumental. ! Given any start point or destination, it'll show everywhere within the chosen commute time, by public transport.” mapumental.com/services/travel-time
  26. 26. “How accessible is your nearest school, post office, or GP’s surgery? ! In Wales, that’s not always a simple question: the country’s mountainous landscapes, rural populations, and sometimes infrequent bus services can mean that those without cars are rather cut off from public service provision.” mapumental.com/services/accessibility
  27. 27. “Just how quickly could fire engines reach a given postcode in case of a fire? ! It’s a question that’s pivotal to decisions made by both the emergency services and the insurance industry.” mysociety.org/2013/04/22/fire-fire-mapumental-and-fire-engine-journey-times

  37. 37. ★ Make your data available on the web (in whatever format) under an open license. ★★ Make it available as structured data (e.g., Excel instead of image scan of a table). ★★★ Use non-proprietary formats (e.g., CSV instead of Excel). ★★★★ Use URIs to denote things, so that people can point at your data. ★★★★★ Link your data to other data to provide context.
