GOOD19 – GO Open Data Conference
By definition, open data is considered to be machine-readable data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anybody with no restrictions. It provides transparency and efficiency in government, and allows developers to create innovative solutions and new business ideas that can help address community problems such as transportation or affordable housing. It means more engaged citizens, bringing together public and private organizations and bridging gaps.
