Mapping local open data sources

As part of our Data4nr local data service, sponsored by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG), we keep track of the nearly 100 Local Information Systems run by local authorities and other organisations. These systems provide a wealth of data on local areas, so it is great to see the DCLG open data strategy published today highlight how they support the re-use of open data by the public sector (more on how important open data is to public and third sector organisations in a future blog).

We have now mapped all the systems we know about at, with a list by region at

We are in the process of updating this list, and adding more information including news feeds, twitter, Facebook etc.  So keep checking back. And of course, if there are systems that should be added (or changed), let us know.
