Elle permet d’aider à la décision, d’évaluer les politiques mises en oeuvre ou de faire vivre les services urbains de notre vie quotidienne (transports, vie culturelle, économie, politique sociale, …). L’open data consiste à mettre à disposition toutes les données publiques numériques non nominatives, ne relevant pas de la vie privée ni de la sécurité. Ce livre montre comme l’open data peut être source d’innovation tant pour les institutions que pour ceux qui réutilisent les données publiques, dans les domaines économiques, culturels et sociaux: comment concrètement initier et animer une démarche d’ouverture de données publiques ?

Bad Services? Holding Officials Accountable with SMS, Radio, and TRAC FM A recent radio poll at Sanyu FM in Kampala, Uganda, asked listeners what area of service delivery should be a priority: healthcare, education, security, sanitation, or transport. Using a new tool, TRAC FM , the station was able to solicit comments via SMS from listeners, discuss the issue on the air, and create and post online visualizations of the responses. The station received 103 SMS responses which showed that healthcare was the major concern for listeners, which accounted for 65% of responses. With help from Text to Change and in partnership with local media organizations, TRAC FM provides citizens in Uganda with a platform to monitor, scrutinize, and discuss public service issues via SMS, radio, and online data visualizations. According to the TRAC FM website : TRAC works in countries affected by poverty and conflict. The TRAC FM software platform was tested earlier this year with students from the Makarere University Business School in Kampala. Where TRAC FM is Being Used

Data journalism at the Guardian: what is it and how do we do it? | News Data journalism. What is it and how is it changing? Photograph: Alamy Here's an interesting thing: data journalism is becoming part of the establishment. Two years ago, when we launched the Datablog, all this was new. Meanwhile every day brings newer and more innovative journalists into the field, and with them new skills and techniques. These are some of the threads from my recent talks I thought it would be good to put in one place - especially now we've got an honourable mention in the Knight Batten award for journalistic innovation. 1. Florence Nightingale's 'coxcomb' diagram on mortality in the army Data journalism has been around as long as there's been data - certainly at least since Florence Nightingale's famous graphics and report into the conditions faced by British soldiers of 1858. The big difference? 2. 3. Sometimes. 4. Read more about this map The datasets are getting massive - 391,000 records for Wikileaks' Iraq release, millions for the Treasury Coins database. 5. 6. 7.

Visual Investigative Scenarios platform: Pages Media And Place (MAP) Productions « Pour faire du datajournalisme, il faut savoir maîtriser Excel » Nicolas Kayser-Bril, datajournaliste chez Owni | Data News Vidéo – Star française du Data Journalisme, NKB répond à Data News pour une interview 75% data et 25% LoL, parce qu’il faut pas déconner, quand même. DataNews : Ca fait un moment qu’on parle du data journalisme et de l’ouverture des données, où en est-on aujourd’hui ? Nicolas Kayser-Bril : L’accès aux données reste très compliqué encore aujourd’hui. Pas mal d’initiatives ont lieu sur l’ouverture des données publiques mais on reste dans une logique très topdown où c’est le décideur qui va gracieusement mettre en ligne cinq ou dix jeux de données. C’est ce qui s’est passé pour l’ouverture des données publiques à Paris où on nous présente quinze jeux de données et on nous dit “voilà on a ouvert !”. Mais avoir le nombre de naissances par hôpital à Paris, ce n’est pas très intéressant. Y a t-il plus de datajournalistes ? Je ne sais pas s’il y a plus de data journalistes. Les grands médias s’ouvrent-ils au datajournalisme ? Tu as vu naître des vocations de datajournaliste ? Non je ne pense pas.

LinkedIn: The Beginner's Guide Update: This post was updated October 2013 to reflect current statistics and tools. LinkedIn is considered the non-sexy, sleeping giant of social networks. It keeps a low profile, perhaps due to the professional nature of its users. Nonetheless, LinkedIn continues to exert a powerful influence on connected job seekers, brands, recruiters and industries. Founded by Reid Hoffman in 2002, LinkedIn has grown to 225 million members in over 200 countries, making it the world’s largest professional network on the Internet (by comparison, Twitter has more than 500 million registered users, and Facebook has surpassed one billion). That being said, we doubt you spend 20 minutes on LinkedIn per day, like Facebook’s power users do.

To ensure that your profile is 100% complete, LinkedIn recommends including the following information. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
