                    Componentization – or the atomization of a given resource into 'packages' – has greatly contributed towards the ease with which software developers are able to re-use and build upon each other's work. We argue that this kind of approach is becoming significantly more important in knowledge development. This talk will discuss the Open Knowledge Foundation's Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network (CKAN) – a registry for open data, from sonnets to statistics, genes to geodata. CKAN has recently been used in the UK Government's beta for a 'data.gov.uk' site.

                      Where do citizens and developers go for information in your city? Perhaps for public transport timetables they have to visit the websites of the local bus and tram companies, for information about bin collections to a local council site, for crime data to the local police website ... and so on. CityData is a platform that brings geo-coded information from local councils, departments and agencies together in one place. Different agencies can upload links to their data from existing systems either using an intuitive web front end or via a powerful API, into grouped spaces on the platform where they can retain their distinctive branding. It provides facilities for agencies to upload and review data before it goes live. It uses non-proprietary, open-source software, tried and tested on large existing projects such as datagm.org.uk, a data platform for the Greater Manchester area. Data can be linked on external sites, or held as structured data on the CityData server, in which case a suite of visualisations and maps are available to users as well as an API to query the data. By making data from many different local sources discoverable and searchable, CityData encourages local app developers to build services using multiple data streams - for example, combining geospatial transport and house price data to make suggestions to a user who needs to find a place to live.
