Athens Open Data Portal Challenge
Athens needs a publicly available open data portal in order for Athens to have a basis for the creation of useful civic applications by citizens or third party developers in the future. This challenge requires the creation of a system that promotes openness, transparency, and accountability of local government by providing high-value government data in standards compliant, machine readable formats.
- Create a system that promotes openness, transparency, and accountability of local government by providing high-value government data in standards compliant, machine readable formats
- Need help? Take this idea for example then. What this challenge calls for is adapting to work for Athens and Open Data specifically.
- Be creative, Athens is very unique, and a cookie-cutter solution won't necessarily solve the challenge!
- Allow for data categorization.
- For example, historical data is different from transportation data, and thus should be in a different category when searching for data as an end-user
- Allow administrators to add data such that each entry has a title, description, and corresponding files in machine readable formats
- Data can be searched through by title and description
- Data that is added to the platform by an administrator must be verified as Open Data, such that it satisfies the definition of Open Data
- Data.gov sites and applications
- Open City App - Open Source projects created by other civic hacking events and groups
- Open Government Platform - OGPL is a joint product from India and United States to promote transparency and greater citizen engagement by making more government data, documents, tools and processes publicly available
