Empowering Transparency through the OPEN Government Data Act

lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-04-21


"The OPEN Government Data Act won’t just help Americans conduct citizen oversight. It will also help agencies cut costs. Most of the expense of big data projects comes from extracting data sets from different sources, transforming them into the same format, and loading them into new systems to be analyzed. If federal data sets were publically available in consistent, machine-readable formats to begin with, these expensive one-off projects would be unnecessary."
