The European open data ecosystem is growing, but where and how much by? Partners from the OpenDataMonitor project have been developing a platform with data and information to help us find out. A set of metrics underpins the platform and shows the quality and quantity of open data.
OpenDataMonitor supports entrepreneurs searching for reusable data, promotes high-quality open data, and helps policy makers and researchers understand how cities, regions and countries adopt open data and gain insights into different publishing patterns. Our symposium will give you the chance to learn more about and contribute to these projects.
- What is OpenDataMonitor and what have we learnt?
- How can we measure the quality and quantity of open data?
- What tools, platforms and services help open data professionals understand more about how the landscape is developing?
- How can we use this research and findings to shape improvements to data quality and quantity?
- How can we take this work forward after the project is complete?
