1 Open Government Data (a technology perspective) José Manuel Alonso CC-BY 2011 CTIC Centro Tecnológico

2 Context: Projects Spain (11 projects + 3 more in the works) – 2 Local – 8 Regional – 1 National: National Data Catalogue International (2 projects + 2 more in the works) – Feasibility (in partnership with Web Foundation) Chile, Ghana – Standardization: W3C eGovernment

3 Spain: varied technical approaches DatasetsTechnology AsturiasFew5-star Linked Data Basque CountryHundreds, much low- hanging fruit All formats, RDF metadata CataluñaDozensAll formats, some RDF/XML, several APIs, some high quality ZaragozaDozensAll formats, some 5-star Linked Data, some APIs GijónDozensAll formats, some RDF/XML, several APIs, some high quality NationalHundredsfrom XLS to HTML pages to PDF reports

4 Spain: varied types of information Example AsturiasHundreds of occupational training courses in Linked Dataoccupational training courses Basque CountryDatabase of Spanish-Basque word and expression translations (700Mb)Spanish-Basque word and expression translations Cataluña geo-located public equipments in RDF/XMLpublic equipments ZaragozaWater cut offs in real time (GeoRSS) GijónPublic transport in real time (Linked Data) NationalA little bit of everything

5 Concerns Heard Loss of licensing revenue Loss of control Legal challenges Unwelcomed exposure Procedural changes Privacy National security Complexity Investment Capacity building required Authenticity, quality Corruption, falsification of data Customer service (Positives are outweighing the concerns)

6 Economical and Business Macroeconomic Stability Financial Markets Markets for Goods and Services Business Environment Economical and Business Macroeconomic Stability Financial Markets Markets for Goods and Services Business Environment Social Demographics Labor Market Quality of Life Education and Literacy Social Demographics Labor Market Quality of Life Education and Literacy Infraestructures y Sci-Tech Innovation ICT Usage Infraestructures Infraestructures y Sci-Tech Innovation ICT Usage Infraestructures Open Access Legal Basis Awareness and Support Data and Interoperability Agents Open Access Legal Basis Awareness and Support Data and Interoperability Agents Institutional and Political Governance and Democracy Transparency and Corruption Cooperation Institutional and Political Governance and Democracy Transparency and Corruption Cooperation OGD Ecosystem: Context is very important

7 Lessons learned: technical (I) Raw data now… and better data afterwards – i.e. start with the low hanging fruit – improve over time (steps)steps Do not try to enforce an specific architecture Chances are you could not deploy it Try to adapt to existing systems and build on top of them as a start More standardization is needed – e.g. on vocabularies (see W3C new groups)see W3C new groups – Whats a dataset? Whats a catalogue? Counting datasets is bad

8 Lessons learned: technical (II) Linked Data is tough but a good tactic, needs improvement It just doesnt work Better tooling is needed Capacity building Publish Reuse Publish Reuse OGD LGD

9 Conclusions The whole ecosystem is very important, dont underestimate Concerns are still many but there are some arguments to be used They need to be addressed ASAP anyway The number of projects is constantly increasing and improving – Lets build on success stories
