Birmingham City Council open data projects
Thanks to active participation in a number of european funded projects including Opticities, Birmingham City Council now has live traffic flow and journey time data at 5 minute intervals, as well as live car parking data within the city centre.
Birmingham City Council want to publish this data openly, but need to understand the priorities for use and application of this data, so they can plan the evolution of an open source platform and prioritise what data is published.
At the Data Discovery Centre at Traffex 2-4 April 2019, Birmingham City Council’s Andy Radford is showcasing some of his current prototyping projects, which are usually done in collaboration with at least 1 SME / micro SME (10 staff or less):
