ITGS Politics and Government

Freedom of Information (FOI) acts and a desire for greater transparency have encouraged governments around the world to open up the data they routinely collect. World Government Data from The Guardian is a central location for finding such data. It contains examples of crime data, financial data, and population data that are available to the public.

This is a great example for the ITGS Politics and Government topic, helping ITGS students understand how governments can provide online services, use the Internet to increase transparency, and how open data can be used to develop new applications.
