NEW: Want to create a mobile app in under an hour? Check out our 2nd Citadel on the Move White Paper

Start Your Open Data Journey

Here you can find useful papers and tools developed by the Citadel project to help you get started on your Open Data journey:

1. What is a 'Smart City'?

Citadel's short vision statement will introduce you to the concept of a smart city and how you can start your own journey by simply starting to open your public data.

2. How can I open data?

Our first project white paper guides you through all the principles to be considered when publishing open city data.

3. I've read the above material, how can I practically get started?

Our second project white paper gives you a practical, step-by-step guide to opening your city's data today.

Extra help and tools from the wider open data innovation world

  • Our friends at the Open Data Institute have a helpful certification tool that makes it easier for people to find use and share your data
  • We also like this easy to use 'geo-coder' tool that lets you add location coordinates to address data to make it available in map form
  • There is even a reverse geo-coder tool that lets you add addresses to latitude and longitude coordinates (in batches of 150)
