Open Data Manchester
Manchester is overflowing with developers, designers and people curious about statistical data and information visualisation. They all have ideas about how to use publicly available data from a wide range of sources. The mission of Open Data Manchester is to:
- Help developers and designers become more familiar with tools, datasets and other projects around the World
- Identify datasets of use to local data users and of interest to us generally
- To provide a catalyst for local authorities in Manchester and the North so that they might make data available for exploration, knowing there are established groups who wish to use it
