We will develop and improve this site and its content in the years to come. We will review the licenses used, make every effort to keep the data current, and correct errors that are brought to our attention. We also aim to integrate and link our data using semantic web and open data standards.
The Open Data Institute (ODI) is working with us to help build our skills and capabilities in open data. We recognize how important it is that our data is of excellent quality and that everything we publish keeps personal information private. The ODI is helping us to apply a set of standards to our data that, in time, mean everything we release as open data comes with a best-practice guarantee.
These practices include, for example:
- Stating conditions of ownership, licensing and re-use
- Providing data in a harmonized and structured format
- Using metadata and controlled vocabularies
- Providing documentation and support channels for feedback and questions
