Open Data User Group call for data requests

September 28, 2012 11:21 AM

On Wednesday, the Open Data User Group has launched a data request form over on data.gov.  The Open Data User Group are looking for suggestions and requests from anyone who is seeking to use data that is not currently available or open to the public.

As a member of the Open Data User Group representing civil society, I am particularly keen on encouraging those working in the third sector to use the form and request information that would impact campaigning, volunteering and charity work. Open data has the potential to provide more effective and efficient ways of delivering services. We do not know what the untapped potential of government data is until it is open and available so do submit any and all requests.

If you would like to get in touch with me regarding questions, comments, or suggestions please do so. I look forward to hearing from you.On Wednesday, the Open Data User Group has launched a data request form over on data.gov.  The Open Data User Group are looking for suggestions and requests from anyone who is seeking to use data that is not currently available or open to the public.
