The NSW government has introduced a new service where people can provide suggestions on what government information they would like to access via a web or mobile front-end.
Thus far the eight suggestions focus heavily on public transport information – knowing when and where buses, trains and ferries may be found.
You can add your own ideas here.
However I’d like to ask a broader question.
Out of all the data that Australian governments collect or may hold, what would you like to see available online in a machine-readable format under an open license supporting reuse?
And how would you use it?
If you’re short on ideas, why not check out the results of the iOpendataday & the International Hackathon, where thousands of people in over 73 cities across 5 continents participated in creating applications using open government data.
In fact it took place pretty much everywhere except Australia – bringing me in mind of Chris Moore’s quote…
Here’s a list of some of the applications created.
