As part of our work to increase the availability and useability of data we are exploring Open Data principles and technologies. Please visit our pilot Open Data project at www.opendatascotland.org to see a showcase of Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation data and an Open Data tutorial using data about schools.
The pilot will run for 12 months from December 2013 during which time we warmly welcome your feedback and thoughts.
You are welcome to use the data in any way you wish and are under no obligation to inform us, but as this is a pilot we would really like to know if and how the data are being used. We're equally keen to hear from you if you have tried to use the data but been unsuccessful for any reason.
Finally, if you have any comments on this work more generally or suggestions for our developing approach to open data please don't hesitate to get in touch.
