Welcome Aboard – Open Data Programme
This programme enables data to be shared and built-on by anyone, anywhere, for any purpose. Working closely with other Bristol City Council departments, it has focused on maintaining the Open Data Bristol Platform which freely provides over 210 quality data sets on a range of themes such as population, education, leisure and tourism, and transport. Through the programme’s ‘Our Data’ initiative, over 12 separate stakeholder events have been undertaken to promote awareness and use of the platform.
The programme’s successes include the Period Friendly Bristol web app, which supports the mayor’s 2019 One City priority of addressing period poverty, and a high-profile hackathon, sponsored by Innovate UK, looking at data solutions for homelessness and housing problems in Bristol and Bath.
