Mapping open data site generations

Over the last three years we’ve seen an increasing level of sophistication and capabilities in successive generations of open data sites.

To aid governments in their open data journey, I’ve mapped five generations for the progressive development of open data sites, detailed in the document below.

Please feel free to reuse the information within the bounds of the embedded Creative Commons license.

My next task is to release a view of open data sites around the world mapped against these generations to provide a view as to who is leading and who is lagging in the open data stakes.
