US Regional, Metropolitan Area Public Sector “Open Data” Synergies, Opportunities, Challenges
Current dialogue among the leadership and constituents of the Federal, Washington
DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) regional “Open Data” government
community have shed new light on the challenges and opportunities that
individual jurisdictions face (not just around DC), in establishing Open
Data capabilities and services – both public-facing, and as part of the
inward-facing “information sharing” context within their own agencies.
Open Data is also a very different conversation, when held at a purely
local level, vs. statewide or across an entire metropolitan region.
