Mashup Competitions & Data Portals - Where Next? Jose Diacono 6 th October, 2010 Attribution-Share Alike
Favourites What data they used Hacker experiences Lessons for custodians and portal managers My Wish list Portal futures
Why do Mashups? “Many serendipitous discoveries arise when a prepared mind makes a previously unnoticed connection between seemingly disparate pieces of information” Government 2.0 taskforce
Developer Experiences Time taken to prepare data Web services would be great Consistent formats (e.g. Crime) Improved tagging and discoverability Responsiveness
HomeHome › Blogs › Lisa Price's blogBlogsLisa Price's blog 1ST JULY 2010 Owing to overwhelming demand by apps that use the service, the London Underground feed has had to be temporarily suspended. We hope to restore the service as soon as possible but this may take some days. We will keep everyone informed of progress towards a resolution.
One feed could provide an entire picture broken down by line and lead car ID with destination & location text once ….. THU, 07/01/ :41 I second the idea of having a call that returns the status of all the trains for feed's 4 and 5, just without the time to destinations. FRI, 07/02/ :45 Let's do this : - each train is an RSS/Atom feed. New events like "train 1234 got in Paddington Station" are the feed entries
Any news on when access might return? An update would be nice. What's happening TFL? The service has been down for a week now - could we get an update? Over the two week mark of the service being down, any updates at all?
Hi - it seems these comments are being moderated so perhaps somebody reading this could comment on the status of this API. We're only asking because we like it so much TH July So this is it? In true British fashion - it was a resounding success so they turned it off... genius!
TFL communication is seriously overdue on the APIs future availability… 26 TH AUGUST Why are you being so rude …Any news is better than no news. 3 RD SEPTEMBER
We are aware from all the comments... a lot of frustration in the developer community Discussions involve a number of stakeholders There is a cost associated with TFL Restored in a sustainable way... within the next 8 weeks... We will tweet and post
Lessons for portal managers Acknowledge and act on feedback Good looking,easy to use, intuitive Test, Test, Test Proper long term resourcing Blogs give a human face Extendability e.g. crowdsourcing
What do portals mean for the Custodian? Know who is using your data Increase the value of your data Crowdsource improvements Part of a community Some extra work Get other people’s data!
Get ready, the data hounds are coming!!
My wish list... Equally friendly spatial portals Link to websites where data is being used Catalogue of public and private webservices and tools Dovetail federal and state Continue hackfests & competitions
is starting to come true A pilot version of the ASDD based on geonetwork
data.gov.au –AGIMO Production version – October/November Will not “set and forget” 1.Discovery 2.Format Raw data -> Tools -> APIs/web services Let discussion blossom Get data out – self publish More Hackdays
