Creating open data

Guidance on creating open data is available in the Open Data Handbook

The main recommendations are to:

  • Keep it simple. Start out small, simple and fast. 
  • Remember this is about innovation. 
  • Engage early and engage often. 
  • Bear in mind your audience. Much of the data will not reach ultimate users directly, but rather via ‘info-mediaries’. These are the people who take the data and transform or remix it to be presented. 
  • Apply an open license.
  • Make the data available - in bulk and in a useful format. You may also wish to consider alternative ways of making it available such as via an API.
  • Make it discoverable - post on the web and perhaps organize a central catalogue to list your open datasets.
