*If you work at a local government or if you are a data provider interested in empowering your community to act with open data, you can take this quiz to kick you off in the right direction.*
Before you take this quiz, we recommend checking out the research methods listed here: https://sunlightfoundation.com/tde/focus-methods
This form will help you think through a few important questions, for example: • Do you know what data is popular among residents? • Do you know what open data you should be sharing? • Do you know who is your biggest data requester? • Do you know what they need your open data to help do? After filling out the form, you’ll receive a report letting you know how in-touch you are with your community’s needs. In some cases, you’ll need to do a little more digging in order to kick off an open data project with a specific focus area that’s grounded in community needs. Note: This form can be used as part of the first Find step of the Tactical Data Engagement process to help cities take a user-informed, tactical approach to empowering residents with better open data and information. The first step of Tactical Data Engagement requires finding a community-relevant focus area where cities can start supporting local collaborative problem-solving.
