Washington State has two levels of Open Data sites – 1) a centralized ArcGIS Open Data site that aggregates data from other agencies and 2) agency specific Open Data sites. This presentation will cover both perspectives. It will include an overview of Open Data and why it is important for public agencies to provide their readily available data in an open format, as well as some best practices for: site configuration, preparing data for publication, metadata, tagging recommendations, item thumbnail standards, and access/use constraints. This session will be rich with tips (pitfalls to avoid), tricks (clever workarounds to those tricky pitfalls) and best practices.
