Open Data & Linked Data

New Data Sets (June 2014)

We've added a number of datasets recently. These include Commemorative Plaques, Sites and Monuments Records (Archaeology) and Food Hygiene Inspection Reports. You'll find those by clicking on the links to the right.

We're also developing quite a few more which we'll make live through the summer.

What is Open Data?

Open data is about increased transparency, about sharing the information we hold with the wider community to build Open Data useful applications.

We're always looking for new ways of making it as easy as possible for developers and website owners to access and present data held by us in ways that they want – allowing you to remix, mashup and share data easily.

Use the links to the right to navigate to our various datasets available.

We'll be adding more datasets soon, as well as pointers to online tools for making use of this data.

How can I get involved with, and use the Open Data?

We want people who live or work in, or visit, Aberdeen to get involved in this initiative by using, transforming, and sharing information.

We've made some Open Data live already and we're planning to identify and make much more of it available. It's categorised so that it's easy to understand.

If you want to play with the data and create something that you think others will find interesting – that's great! Where possible, the data has been provided in a mashable format so you can use tools such as Yahoo Pipes.

Share

Once you've transformed the data, email us at webmonitor@aberdeencity.gov.uk and let us know what you've done – and we'll post it on the site. If it impresses our techies, it may even appear as one of the top mashups on this page!

Discuss

We'd really like to hear any comments you have on the data or mashups: webmonitor@aberdeencity.gov.uk

Help?

We're going to develop some training materials to explain mashups and how to create them. If you would like share your mashup expertise with our community, get in touch with us.
