All ideas

Leeds City Council and its partners are at the start of an open data journey, working together to harness the power of data in the city. Open data presents a range of opportunities to the citizens of Leeds, from gaining a greater understanding of their city to encouraging civic enterprise and moving from a state provider to a state enabler in difficult financial times. Via its support for the development of the unique Leeds Data Mill platform, Leeds City Council hopes to bring together the widest possible range of public and private sector data to inform and inspire its citizens. Rewired State’s National Hack The Government will be the first time that this data is available to all and offers a platform to share ideas and knowledge and continue the open data debate. -Culture and Sport, City Development Directorate, Leeds City Council
