Swiss Open Geodata: Opportunities and Threats

608 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

This talk was held in the March 2016 ITSL (http://www.itsl.uzh.ch) workshop on open geodata that brought together representatives from the Swiss National Mapping Agency Swisstopo, academic experts in geoinformation science and law, OGD practicioners from the City of Zurich, Gary Gale (UK, what3words) and myself. The purpose was to identify opportunities and threats that come with open geodata. My talk was specifically intended to approach these topics primarily from an industry perspective.

Swiss Open Geodata: Opportunities and Threats

  1. 1. Open geodata: Opportunities and threats Ralph Straumann, @rastrau Ernst Basler + Partner, Zurich also: Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford ITSL Workshop March 9, 2016
  2. 2. EBP’s business fields in Switzerland ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 2
  3. 3. EBP’s operational bases ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 3
  4. 4. EBP and data  We use open data, government-issued and other  We help government (and private institutions) produce data, derive data, assess data quality, disseminate data, etc.  We are project-driven, and so is data we handle – free or not  We don’t usually publish data (there’s not really a stock of in-house data)  We advocate open data policies, e.g. in strategy consulting  We are an institutional member of Opendata.ch ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 4
  5. 5. «Opportunities and threats» For who? To whom?  Private companies?  Individuals?  Government and administration?  Budget?  Society?  All end-users?  ... ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 5

  8. 8. OGD = easier data gathering and lowered entry barriers  Ex: price for communal geodata: 0–20kCHF per commune [Buogo & Moullet 2012]  Data monopolies or oligopolies are abolished  data not (with)held by service providers anymore (e.g. cadastral surveyor, SBB)  Hence: Lowered barriers to entering a market. New data products or applications become viable. ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 8
  9. 9. License jungle  Plethora of licenses in federal, cantonal and municipal offices (and also other data providers, e.g. ODbL for OSM), PD for NaturalEarth)  License, usage conditions, usage restrictions, requests, ..., sometimes contradicting  Licenses that are incompatible with certain uses e.g. OSM  For some licenses: Virality  E.g., what is a collective work, what a derived work? ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 9
  10. 10. License jungle: opendata.swiss ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 10
  11. 11. «Data debt» (cf. «technical debt») «In the long-term, one of the biggest challenges of Open Data is not to have the raw data publicly available, but to provide and consume up-to-date and high quality services based on the original data. As a consumer, you have to keep in mind that everything is a cache, as long as you are not the owner of the data. You are in a dependency chain and you are not in control of the whole chain.» ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 11 http://geo.ebp.ch/2014/03/31/services-or-raw-data
  12. 12. Data debt and unintended consequences  App with outdated data: Kataster der belasteten Standorte (InteractiveThings)  Refusal of data access: Mailboxes, OSM and Swiss Post ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 12
  13. 13. Data debt  App with outdated data: Kataster der belasteten Standorte (InteractiveThings)  Refusal of data access: Mailboxes, OSM and Swiss Post ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 13
  14. 14. Data debt  App with outdated data: Kataster der belasteten Standorte (InteractiveThings)  Refusal of data access: Mailboxes, OSM and Swiss Post ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 14
  15. 15. Not law – but open data ethics? Charter for Public Statistics in Switzerland (2014): e.g., statistics are mandated, respondents give informed consent, data is provided to the public, etc. http://www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/portal/de/index/news/publikationen.html?publicationID=4876 3D Ethics Charter («3D OK»): e.g., avoid bias, use reliable and current data, document source data, reference changes in the data, etc. http://3dok.info/WordPress3/les-principes-de-la-charte/?lang=en ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 15 http://geo.ebp.ch/2014/06/05/open-data-rechte-und-pflichten
  16. 16. Not law – but open data ethics? Charter for Public Statistics in Switzerland (2014): e.g., statistics are mandated, respondents give informed consent, data is provided to the public, etc. http://www.bfs.admin.ch/bfs/portal/de/index/news/publikationen.html?publicationID=4876 3D Ethics Charter («3D OK»): e.g., avoid bias, use reliable and current data, document source data, reference changes in the data, etc. http://3dok.info/WordPress3/les-principes-de-la-charte/?lang=en ... and OGD?  Signatories of these kinds of charters are usually official-ish bodies  How can we achieve commitment of relevant actors? ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 16 http://geo.ebp.ch/2014/06/05/open-data-rechte-und-pflichten
  17. 17. Finances How should OGD be financed?  Ex. Swisstopo:  Geodata dissemination revenue of 13 MCHF vs. production costs of 250-300 MCHF  Swisstopo’s (FLAG Office; «Führung mit Leistungsauftrag und Globalbudget») options: compensation, reduction of mandate or of revenue- to-cost ratio  Threat for taxpayers (preparatory effort for uncertain gains through OGD) ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 17 http://opendata.ch/files/2012/07/OGD_Studie_Schlussversion.pdf
  18. 18. Finances VGI (e.g. OSM) to the rescue?  various inherent biases in crowdsourced data  OSM provides a service to the public, not ‘service public’ (in the Swiss sense) ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 18 http://geo.ebp.ch/2014/06/25/operational-use-of-crowdsourced-data-energic-workshop-presentation http://geo.ebp.ch/2014/09/19/the-data-workers-manifesto

  22. 22. «Hacksploitation» and sustainable impact «Entsorgung Zürich» app (citizen) vs. «Sauberes Zürich» app (government) «Trainshare» app (citizen) vs. «SBB-CONNECT» (gov-owned entity) ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 22 http://opendata.ch/pressearchiv/offener-brief-zur-smartphone-app-sauberes-zuerich http://trainshare.ch
  23. 23. Finally  Confusion of terms: What are we talking about even?  In our projects, OGD can make data gathering more efficient  OGD affords newly viable applications and data products  More competition and innovation over rent-seeking ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 23
  24. 24. Finally, finally  Lack of legal knowledge: License jungle, license-application conflicts  Know-how transfer, legal consultation  Best practices for data providers/license issuers  Simple, universally adopted geodata licenses  Data debt and liability  Technical solutions  Legal implications?  Open data ethics?  Financing OGD  Political solutions  Hackathons and intellectual property  Prior clarification of intellectual property  Open data ethics and community management ITSL Workshop on Open Geodata, 9.3.2016 24
