Bonjour à tous,
Montreal Ouvert is working to produce an "ideal" motion for open-data in the city of Montreal. The motion is inspired by the great initiatives in Vancouver and Ottawa. We would very much appreciate your comments, alternative wording and other advice, especially around your respective areas of expertise.
This version remains a rough copy.
The document is presently in English to facilitate commenting by various parties across Canada, it will be circulated on Civic Access for a second round of comments and then translated in French.
Deadline for 1st round of comments: Sunday, January 16th, 2010 at 11PM EST
Please be sure to sign with your name.
Jean-Noé, Jonathan, Michael, & Sebastien
Motion pour les données ouvertes à la Ville de Montréal
Here we have a medium-lenth "WHEREAS Montreal has mandated X, Y, Z,...", but we are really looking for comments on the following:
AND WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF OPEN DATA BEING THE FOLLOWING;
To guide City staff in determining what and how data is released, the following principles of Open Data provide good guidelines and are recommended by Montréal Ouvert. Originally created in 2007 through a workshop of concerned organizations, many jurisdictions have used them to guide their Open Data initiatives:
Complete All public data is made available. Public data is data that is not subject to legal or otherwise valid privacy, security or privilege limitations.
Primary Data is as collected at the source, with the highest possible level of granularity, not in aggregate or modified forms.
Timely Data is made available as quickly as necessary to preserve the value of the data.
Accessible Data is available to the widest range of users for the widest range of purposes.
Machine processable Data is reasonably structured to allow automated processing.
Non-discriminatory Data is available to anyone, with no requirement of registration.
Non-proprietary Data is available in a format over which no entity has exclusive control.
License-free Data is not subject to any copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret regulation. Reasonable privacy, security and privilege restrictions may be allowed.”
La ville de Montréal "endorses the following":
a. That city data produced and collected by the City of Montreal is declared "open"
Open and Accessible Data - the City of Montreal will freely share with citizens, businesses and other jurisdictions the greatest amount of data possible while respecting privacy and security concerns;
Open Standards - the City of Montreal will move as quickly as possible to adopt prevailing open standards for data, documents, maps, and other formats of media;
b. That the city puts in place an index of all open datasets in machine readable formats.
c. That the data offered on the index are unlicensed, allowing for free re-use by third parties, in a prevailing open standard format, and not copyrighted except if otherwise prevented by legal considerations.
BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED THAT the XXX be tasked with developing an action plan for implementation of the above.
