Welcome to the London Datastore

Welcome to the London Datastore
The London Datastore has been created by the Greater London Authority (GLA) as an innovation towards freeing London’s data. We want citizens to be able access the data that the GLA and other public sector organisations hold, and to use that data however they see fit – free of charge. The GLA is committed to influencing and cajoling other public sector organisations into releasing their data here too. Releasing data though is just half the battle. Raw data often doesn’t tell you anything until it has been presented in a meaningful way. We want to encourage the masses of technical talent that we have in London to transform rows of text and numbers into apps, websites or mobile products which people can actually find useful.

Swarmize, now in alpha, won funding through the Knight News Challenge in June, and has been built at the Guardian over the last four months. "The Guardian and lots of other news organisations like to use Google Docs for collecting data," said Matt McAlister, the Guardian's general manager of new digital businesses. I'm hopeful that we'll start to see better data journalism because the tools are moving alongMatt McAlister, the Guardian "It's free, it's pretty easy to use, however it does have a lot of shortfalls," McAlister told "Data journalism has moved a lot in the last couple of years, and it [Google Docs] is just too limited for some of the sophisticated stuff that people want to do."
