Open data platform
Bristol City Council’s open data goal is to unlock value for the Council, citizens and businesses by sharing Bristol’s data to address city challenges, promote innovation and make the city more open and accountable. The council already shared over 130 data sets on its open data platform but in order to extend reach and impact the council is currently developing its open data ecosystem to make it easy a possible for employees, external organisations and citizens to interact with data.
The Council also understands that publishing and encouraging access, use and re- use of data is only a part of the process, and is therefore committed to an ongoing community engagement programme. Current engagement activity includes, but is not limited to, an open data challenge series and support in the delivery of ‘The Bristol Approach to Citizen Sensing’ with Knowle West Media Centre.
