Making government data open, accessible, and usable is important for the impact it has on the public. Open data results in impact such as cost savings, efficiency, entrepreneurship, improved civic services, informed policy, performance planning, research and scientific discoveries, transparency and accountability, and increased public participation in government. Highlighting open data stories builds support for continuing the effort to make government data open by default.
