The New Open Data Handbook

Originally published in 2012, the Open Data Handbook has released an second edition. The handbook is to be used as a guide for organizations or individuals interested in publishing and/or utilizing open data. The goal is ensuring data is open and that data is applied as often as possible.

The second edition now includes 3 parts.

  1. Open Data Guide – The Why?, What? and How? of open data
  2. Value Stories – Stories of how open data is making a difference
  3. Resource Library – Videos, presentations, and publications about open data

Following the theme of open, the Open Data Handbook is open sourced on Github. You are free and encouraged to contribute. There is even an extensive contribution guide if you are interested.
