Interagency Data Policy Workshop
This Interagency Data Policy workshop will be a working meeting where we will work in small groups to develop and document answers and solutions to questions and problems identified prior to and during the Federal Agency Data Policy Panel. These discussions will be facilitated by Bruce Caron and Karl Benedict, and will be documented for consolidation in the Federation wiki. We hope to bring technologists together with data managers to collaborate in developing recommendations that are both technically feasible while meeting the common data management and delivery needs of the multiple agencies participating in the meeting.
INSTRUCTIONS for TABLE Discussion WRITE-UPS
Please use your word processor to write a short description of the discussion at your table, using the notes from the flip-pad. Copy and paste this under the QUESTION on its page (See Link Below.)
2. How is “data access” from federal agencies different from “data access” from commercial and other sectors? Where can federal agencies learn from private data/information providers (such as Google Earth and Flickr)?
5. How important is an SOA approach in the effort to provide improved user interoperability with data center data? (Alternately, should data centers provide the data and let users determine how to manipulate these?)
9. “Crowdsourcing” volunteer data input from citizens can extend/improve/correct data records. How can agencies best gather these data? How do agencies resolve quality issues and other concerns when using crowdsourced data?
11. Public-private partnerships can bring private sector expertise and support to data collection efforts. How can these be managed to ensure that the public interests in the resulting data are maintained while the private need for returns on investment are also supported?
