Open Data from governments and projects
Whether it flooding, drought or environmental pollution, we cannot mitigate or respond to disasters without data. However, prediction models, mobile apps and web services for policy support can only be used if sufficient data are freely available. Those data are usually collected by governments, funded by taxpayers. Taxpayers should therefore be entitled to access these data, provided they do not infringe the privacy and safety of citizens.
I wrote a blog about this for Open Data Day 2019 and I'm curious about your opinions and experiences.
