Alpha prototype of publicdata.eu is now live

with 2 comments

We’re pleased to announced that a preliminary prototype of publicdata.eu is now live:

This is part of the requirements gathering, design and prototyping work that we’re doing as part of Work Package 1. The information about datasets is currently being federated from a number of different sources, and brought together from a single point of access. There is currently support for basic faceted browsing, so that you can search for, for example, XLS files from Finland or material from the CSV files from Germany.

Next steps include increasing and improving this faceted browsing functionality (and introducing more useful fields), and including more information about datasets from different public bodies around Europe (partly by continuing to talk to people who maintain various local, regional and national data catalogues across Europe).

We’re going to be making lots of tweaks and improvements to site this over the next few weeks, so watch this space!
