Open data release checklist

We have developed a draft checklist of the things you should consider before releasing open data. The checklist includes explanations of each item in the list. The aim of the checklist is to support the release of open data. Thank you very much to those who contributed to the draft.

Open data release checklist

Although the checklist has been written with a New Zealand audience in mind, we have tried to make it relevant and useful to the wider global open data community.

Tell us what you think

Help us improve the open data release checklist. We have published the draft checklist as a Google Doc so that you can add comments or suggest changes to the checklist - we acknowledge that with your practical experience you may discover better ways of doing or explaining things, and we would be grateful for any suggestions.
