Description

The tools and standards for providing greater access to data are maturing and becoming more widespread in their adoption - though often still appealing mainly to the developer community. This session draws on a number of international case studies in opening up data to discuss not just the "how" but also the "why" and "for whom," with all the issues of ethics and cultural identity that such projects can entail.
