Abstract

 

Governments across the world are adopting open data policies and practices. From national portals, to municipal open data initiatives, and sector­specific efforts in transport, health and international aid to name just a few, open data has been adopted as an important governance innovation.

In line with the growth of open data, a range of different efforts have emerged to measure various aspects of open data readiness, implementation, outcomes and impacts. This paper outlines a common framework, developed through a collaborative workshop, that offers opportunities to join­up these efforts through common and complementary assessment methods for open data activities.
