Introducing the DataStore A major new feature in the DataHub is good news for data wranglers.

What Can Open Data Entrepreneurs Do for Development? Four years ago the World Bank Group opened its data to the public hoping innovators would find new ways to use the data. At the same time, a growing number of governments were also opening up their data – to be more accountable, and to spur economic activity around the data.

About 500 companies that use open data in their business have sprung up in the United States alone, and similar businesses are cropping up all over the world, even in countries with limited data — let alone open data. So far, this open data-fueled sector is still small, but it promises to take the delivery of useful information to a new level as it grows.
