A design exercise if you like. We’ve been thinking about the beta repository, and wanted to explore putting some of the information contained within into people’s hands in a form that is accessible, timely, and relevant. And perhaps unsurprisingly, we thought a good way to do that was with a newspaper. So here it is, the Postcode Paper: It’s a prototype of a service for people moving into a new area.

It gathers information about your area, such as local services, environmental information and crime statistics. It’s not just data from central government – we also scraped TFL for travel times, and ITO generated us a bespoke spider map of transport options in our area. And there’s stuff from the NHS and the council. We printed 50, and gave them out to a room full of civil servants, who seemed very excited its possibilities. Thanks to Gavin Bell and Dan Catt for helping out. Newspaper: Opening Up Local Information as a Newspap.
