The Office of the Chief Statistician and Performance have awarded a contract to Swirrl to explore the potential of Open Data technologies for increasing the accessibility of Official Statistics and other analytical data.
As a key dissemination tool for statistics in Scotland, the Scottish Neighbourhood Statistics website is an important part of this work.
Swirrl will be piloting an Open Data solution for SNS using a section of data from the website, and linking it to other data. Feedback from the users of the data is vital, so if you have suggestions for the pilot please get in touch.
Work to explore options, data and issues is underway between now and November. The pilot will launch in November and will remain online and open to feedback for 12 months.
A project report and all training materials produced by Swirrl for the Scottish Government will be published on the SG website under the Open Government Licence in December 2013.
