Geothink & Learn 4: The Open Data Standards Directory
In many ways, a precondition to realizing the promise of open government data is the standardization of that open data. Open data standards ensure interoperability, establish benchmarks in assessing whether governments achieve their goals in publishing open data, and can better ensure accuracy of the data. Interoperability enables the use of off-the shelf software and can make it easier for third party developers to create one product that serves multiple locales. Our project aims to determine which standards for civic data are best to open up government data. We built an inventory of data standards and identified a set of metrics to evaluate those standards. Our goal is to inform civic open data providers about which standards to choose prior to implement and deter providers from standards that lock in users. The Open Data Standards Directory can be found here:
