Hi all


A good place to start would be the European Public Sector Information (PSI)
Platform (ePSIplatform) at http://www.epsiplus.net/ - in particular the
Topic Reports and PSI Library.


Best wishes

Hi Gerhard,


perhaps you can then enlighten Antti with some pointers to those "plenty of

either those of my colleagues or mine. Or addressed in previous EU
projects." for him to start getting the overview he wishes have.

Dear Antti, Dear Steven,

I do appreciate your enthusiasm. 
But open data and PSI re-use have been heavily researched and debated
on for now 14 years and not one.

All the addressed topics and questions can be found in plenty of
either those of my colleagues or mine. Or addressed in previous EU projects.
However, most publications are not for free. 
not only legal bus also businss opportunities and markets have been dealt

You might redo the same work, but it will be very time-consuming.
Insiders know quite well which kind of PSI is asked for and what less.
And where the re-use barriers are constituted in Europe.

Happy new year, 


Has anyone collected information about:

categorized list of all kinds of applications and application ideas)


B) the content of the data catalogues, what kind of data is currently
provided by the governments (local, regional, national)


I'm trying to build the big picture that would unite the general themes of
the public sector data and the general classes (current) of applications and

Has anyone explored what government data is in highest "demand" on the
emerging public data reuse sites? How does interest from different
re-user audiences vary (e.g.  business, media, open gov advocates,
independent coders, etc.)

Also, has anyone started a comparsion chart of what different
governments are providing? It would be interesting to quickly see what
 different national or local governments are providing now and over
time. This gets to the "what's important" to release for easy reuse
versus what is the easiest or least politically sensitive.
