Has most of government data released openly so far been flytipping, little used and of little value?

David Mitton, of ListPoint, shared results from a recent survey on attitudes towards government data, discussing how more value from government data can be realised.

Using the national police database as a case study, he examinde how this data was made more widely usable and how IT implementation costs were reduced by 5%, just by surfacing and mapping the data standards.
