Andrii Bilous: Public authorities do not always know what data should be published and how (photo)
One of the problems in consistent publication of open data is that public authorities do now always know what particular information should be published and in what form, the DiXi Group analyst Andrii Bilous said at a round table held by the government-civic initiative “Together against corruption”.
“Specialists of public bodies often argue that this or that data is narrowly specialized and too complex for the society. Nevertheless, the availability of quality data passports, i.e. information about information or, as it is also called, metadata which interprets the meaning of data, can answer many questions”, the expert said.
