Transcript of A Model for Open Data in Colorado

A Model for Open Data in Colorado Allan Glen, OpenColorado & City and County of Denver ( @a_glen @OpenColorado) Justin Lewis, Denver Regional Council of Governments ( @jmapping @DRCOGorg) Open Government http://codeforamerica.org/2012/06/28/communities-government-success/ Open Data Non-Proprietary 8 principles Data are available in a format over which no entity has exclusive control. Non-Discriminatory Data are available to anyone, with no requirement of registration. Machine Processable Data are reasonably structured to allow automated processing of it. Accessible Data are available to the widest range of users for the widest range of purposes. Timely Data are made available as quickly as necessary to preserve the value of the data. Primary Data are published as collected at the source, with the finest possible level of granularity, not in aggregate or modified forms. Complete All public data are made available. Public data are data that are not subject to valid privacy, security or privilege limitations, as governed by other statutes. License Free Data are not subject to any copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret regulation. Reasonable privacy, security and privilege restrictions may be allowed as governed by other statutes.

(? datasets) Interactive map available at: http://data.opencolorado.org/stats Map illustrates the density of spatial datasets available on OpenColorado. Polygon data is weighted by area (i.e. larger polygons have less impact on data density). Demo http://goo.gl/IjpuK Free and open platform for government organizations to publish open data Aggregate and publish regional datasets using open data published to OpenColorado. The DRCOG catalog is synchronized with OpenColorado. Provide open access to state datasets. Integration with local government datasets from OpenColorado planned.
