Free GIS Data - GIS Data Depot Can't find the free data? - not all of the data is available for free download (ie. State-wide or County bundles, DRGs, DOQs). Open data businesses - an oxymoron or a new model? Written by Mor Rubinstein Christian Villum Building a business based on open data may seem counterintuitive, but new models are emerging with greater frequency and demonstrating how to integrate open data into a business operation in a useful and profitable manner. Identifying the type of open data that can help a business grow involves not only understanding what open data is, but also creative thinking around what can be done with the data. Once a useful data source is identified, a business owner must assess the risks and decide how to integrate the data into their product. While the first part of open data use relies only on a business discovering a viable application for the data, the second part is dependent completely on the data publisher and can hinder business opportunities if the data is not delivered regularly and in a consistent format.

Coverage: Worldwide, by country, economic region and geographical region Years Covered: From 1980 to 2016 forecasts Making aid more effective in Nepal Written by The Open Data Institute Nepal is currently focusing on building transparent and accountable public institutions following a period of disruptive civil war. By 2013-14, foreign aid represented 22% of the national budget and financed most development spending. NGOs, journalists and civil society have demanded more comprehensive, timely and detailed information on aid flows, particularly geographic information, to show where money is being directed. In June 2013, the Aid Management Platform was launched by the Ministry of Finance to assist efforts aimed at monitoring aid and budget spending. All NGOs are now required to report details about their funding and programmes to the platform, building on civil society- driven open data initiatives including Open Nepal’s open data portal, Aid Snapshot, and the Open Aid Partnership.

Supporting sustainable development with open data In 2015, the United Nations will gather governments, civil society groups and international NGOs from around the world to decide on global development priorities for the next 15 years. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will address major global issues of justice, human rights, social inclusion, prosperity and the environment. This is a critical time for country governments, donors, business, NGOs, academia and the open data community to consider how open data can be applied to achieve development targets. While open data can be used to benefit many areas, this report identifies three where it could have a significant impact in the next development agenda and beyond. Open data can: i) more effectively target aid money and improve development programmes, ii) track development progress and prevent corruption, and iii) contribute to innovation, job creation and economic growth.
