Open Data Communities

Often, efforts to map the international community have been fraught with problems, namely outdated or incomplete lists, unstandardized information and limited funding. Following conversations at Transparency Camp (Sunlight Foundation’s annual opengov gathering), discussion sprang up about the possibility of creating a living platform that would provide an overview of the open government community and allow stakeholders to connect with other actors. Some work has been done towards this goal and we’re excited to share some of that with you in Berlin -- including an initial draft of a survey designed to gather information on the opengov community. Community buy-in and participation are critical to the success of this project and we need your help to make it work.
