Glad to see open data making its way into all corners of the tech world! The language below is from CityNext, an initiative to use technology for improving cities.
“Increase transparency with open data. Using applications that expose public data and information to individual citizens and businesses, cities can increase insight and establish productive two-way communications. Cities collect a wealth of information from sensors, daily business processes, and citizen feedback. Now, both citizens and governments can gain insight into the accumulated data and drive initiatives for new solutions that improve quality-of-life."
