UK, US most committed in G8 to unleashing data
The United Kingdom is the G8 nation most committed to opening data to the public, a new report suggests. A ranking from the Center for Data Innovation, a Washington think tank, finds the U.K. has met the most aspects of a G8 Open Data Charter; elements of the charter, drawn up at a summit in Northern Ireland in 2013, include releasing public data in machine-readable formats, providing high-quantity data across a range of topics, and standardizing metadata, among others.
