The City of Philadelphia Releases their Open Data Guidebook

Matt Ball on March 4, 2013 - in Planning, Projects

The City of Philadelphia recently released its internal Open Data Guidebook, a how-to for city departments who are interested in releasing data. The guidebook, developed by the  city’s Open Data Working Group, has been in the works since late last year. It provides answers to questions like, “Why release open data?” and “What data should my department release?”

The guidebook is a work in progress,and builds upon the city’s Open Government Plan. This release is made available through Google Docs, allowing for comments to gain feedback from the public.

Read it on Google Docs at ph.ly/OpenDataGuide.
