Hi all,

Please see below: OKFN is looking for crowd sourced datasets for the Open Data Census. This is a map of which countries are actively doing open data:


Belgium is still a black spot while it shouldn't. Would you be able to help out Christian and Zara?

Thank you,

Hi Pieter,

I wanted to ask - at the moment, we're focusing on our Open Data Census<http://census.okfn.org/> - which is assessing the state of open data across the world. We'd love to get the census filled in as much as possible, and for this we would really appreciate your help, as Belgium is still missing a datasets.





Hi everyone,

We want to improve the coverage of the Open Data Census (http://census.okfn.org/<http://census.okfn.org/>) and verify existing contributions to ensure information is still up to date and reliable.

We need your help in doing this! There are 2 aspects:

 *   Contributing on countries where there is missing information - you can do this right now, just visit http://census.okfn.org/countries/
 *   Reviewing existing contributions - you will need access to the review spreadsheet<https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiWM2KV46Zt0dGxMVVo3c3JKZ2U0NHVzZVozSEJwdXc#gid=0> (just let us know and we can add you)

We would also like to appoint Open Data Census editors who would oversee a country or region.

This would involve a relatively small amount of time over the next couple of weeks (until June 12th) and would involve both adding information yourself and mobilizing input and expertise from colleagues to contribute.

If you are interested in being an editor please just reply to this mail (this way we can coordinate efforts). Or, simply go to http://census.okfn.org/countries/ add information directly!

We look forward to hearing from you!


Zara, Christian, Rufus and the rest of the OKF team
