This Friday Local DirectGov will be hosting the Really Useful Data event (1 July 2011) at the Department for Communities and Local Government in Central London. The event has just sold out – but you can still shape the day! UPDATE: A few additional tickets have JUST been made available. Sign up now. Or find out more about why this is a data event with a difference.
Go check out the many useful ideas for using local data. Such as:
- Budget information as open (and machine readable) data using existing standard headings.
- Profiling and combining local area data such as index of multiple deprivation.
- or my personal favourite – sharing data about things to do in the local area…(vote for this! I need this app as a parent of very active, easily bored child!)
Or check out any of the sixteen (and counting!) other ideas, Vote on the ideas, comment on them or add your own.
Remember this event is only the beginning of a cooperative, sector-wide effort to share and use open data much more effectively – so share your ideas now.
