Compiling Data Inventories


There is growing realisation around the world of the value in carrying out data inventories as a key foundational step to a well-managed data infrastructure and transparency over data held by government.

The International Open Data Charter have hosted a blog written by Philippa Fogarty at X4 Consulting, who have been one of our partners in the process, about the benefits of data inventories and a successful collaboration across agencies in taking stock of geospatial marine data held.

"Data inventories allow government to clearly identify what data they collect and hold, as well as the status of those datasets. This is a key piece of work, designed to accelerate the building of a well-managed data infrastructure, provide greater transparency and visibility of available data, and enable economic and social benefits for all New Zealand through data driven innovation."
