launches government open data drive, supported by Data4nr

The new government open data website, led by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Professor Nigel Shadbolt, was launched to much acclaim last week. As well as linking to public datasets, gathers together applications, ideas and discussion around open data use.

As of launch, the site links to more than 2,800 public datasets – over a third of which have been sourced from (run by OCSI on behalf of the Department of Communities and Local Government) using our machine-readable feeds (which also provide regular updates).
