Event Details

It seems a long while since our last Open Data Manchester although March was packed with open data related stuff in Manchester. This month we revert to a more traditional format. There will be the usual show and tell with updates about what initiatives are going on in the Greater Manchester open data world and further afield.

 TaxHack is a new project based in Manchester, where the techniques and tools of open data will be used to support the tax justice movement. By using the technology and ethos of open data for tax related journalism, we plan to utilise online spaces and hackdays to tackle questions on corruption, tax avoidance and corporate secrecy, and make it accessible to the wider public. For example, one of the current projects for TaxHack is to identify which companies are receiving large public contracts while at the same time using tax havens, and then correlating the physical location of the companies’ operations to areas affected by public sector cuts. In the process we hope to pressure centres of power to release more data in the interests of transparency. http://taxhack.wordpress.com/

 Farida Vis will talk about the next iteration of her Allotment Data project http://allotmentdata.org/

 Also we will catch up with what happened at the Routes to the Future Innovation Challenge that took place in March. A report on the Open Data Manchester Special – An Open Data Future will be out soon.
