Creating the Difference

Open Data Dashboards

Klaas Jan Mollema and Martijn Hartog, The Hague University of Applied Sciences

Workshop with maximum 15 participants. Registration via the registration desk.

Coming 20 years, the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations expects that the cuts and retirements will reduce the number of civil servants in governmental organisations drastically. Such a change will have an effect on the quality of the services it provides.

By making current expenses and decision-making processes more transparent, citizens can be incorporated in the work the government is doing now. The deployment of Open Data can contribute to this kind of transparency.

By using the visualization of a dashboard, citizens will have an insight on data, expenses and processes. This creates the possibility to outsource the management of neighbourhoods to citizens who live there.
During this workshop we will create a mockup of a dashboard by looking at ourselves as citizens and brainstorm what we want to see in this managing tool.
