Sheffield has a vibrant open data community and a council that is creating the environment and infrastructure to enable the benefits of open data to be realized.
This video was made at an event held on 10 July 2015 to showcase what has been achieved. Topic covered include the open data publishing platform provided by Socrata at data.sheffield.gov.uk and the Air Quality Plus project run by Sheffield’s Better with Data Society.
The event also aimed to engage and energise decision-makers working in or with the council by illustrating the benefits of opening up data, and explaining how, through publishing open data, better outcomes can be delivered for Sheffield’s residents, businesses, and voluntary and public services.
The event was created as a collaboration between Sheffield City Council, Boilerhouse Media’s Making a Difference with Data initiative, Sheffield’s Better with Data Society, Capita, and Socrata.
