Open Data Press is a tool enabling easy publishing of custom-formatted open data from information managed in Google Spreadsheets.The tool will be open source, and utilise the Google App Engine, allowing easy and low cost deployment for NGOs and public agencies.
Open data is easier to understand if it’s comparable. We help communities and networks create open and interoperable standards, and develop strategies to accelerate their use and impact.
We make data accessible for anyone to use without having to be an open data expert. We help you to determine the right tools and platforms to meet the needs of your community.
Open data isn’t just about supplying data. Its about people and organizations collaborating to solve real problems. We help organize workshops, events, and develop outreach strategies.
We create guides, case studies, and use or create online tools to help your organization engage your community with aid data. We believe open data’s value lies in getting development organizations to collaborate.
