Value of Data

Using some of the recommendations here, including documenting solid applications of the data, and a 'social network of users' will help to establish and document the 'value' of data by the importance and diversity of data use.

File size

It is useful to show the filesize as many agencies do. This helps some users decide (a) whether the size is too small to contain the data envisioned in the description (often the case) or (2) to prepare for an especially large load of data.

Facilitate Access to Agency Web Services via Aggregation

In addition to providing Agency metadata and facilitating informed discovery of datasets, there may be a good role for Data.Gov to serve in also serving as a clearinghouse for discovering and facilitating access to datacentric agency web services, e.g. Open Geospatial Consortium Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Feature Service (WFS). In many instances, these types of services may lie scattered across and within agencies, ...more »

ADA's Anti Denturists Policy - Data Not Listed With Fed Agencies

Denturist data is not available through federal agencies. The American Dental Association Policy Handbook clearly outlines the act to suppress the denturist profession and intimidate dental suppliers of dental material to denturists.

Agency Next Steps

Getting rid of governmentese

First -- Find a Napoleon's corporal to review and revise the words used in all information shown on your new website. Discard all made-up words, such as dataset and replace with words that can easily be understood by the dumb corporal.

Disclosure of Nursing Homes Problems

We need the disclosure of the names of nursing homes and rehabilitation centers that have either low ratings, high incidences of abuse, neglect or high rates of death. We, the public, are unaware of the ratings of these institutions when we place our loved ones there. They are recommended to us by hospitals upon discharge of elderly relatives, so we naturally believe they are safe. In 1999, my 76 year old mother died ...more »

Improve data quality

Hi, one of the greatest problems I find right now is data quality. First, there are no way to validate the data.
