Open Data Impact Map

The Center for Open Data Enterprise aims to “maximize the value of open government data as a public resource, by focusing on data users.” Toward this goal, the Center, in conjunction with Open Data For Development Network (OD4D) recently launched the Open Data Impact Map, an interactive map of organizations – including for-profit, nonprofit, and academic institutions – that use open data to call attention to exactly who uses open government data. Visitors can browse the Map by selecting one of the 97 included countries. Within each country, users can then check out organizations that use open data by the city where they are headquartered.  Alternatively, visitors can explore open data usage by Region of the world or by Sector. As an included infographic reveals, government open data is most frequently used by Information Technology (IT) and Geospatial organizations. Finally, visitors may opt to browse this data by name of Organization (the site features 1,727 in total). The Map is accompanied by a 28-page report. This will be added to Statistics Resources and Big Data Subject Tracer™. Copyright © 2016 Internet Scout Research Group –
