More Transparency to Decision-Making
The Open Decision API makes municipal decisions and decision-making processes more transparent and accessible to the citizens.
What does the Open Decision API do?
City council, committee and board agendas and records can be published along with their attachments as open data. The data can be filtered by date, keywords, and location for easy access. The API also enables combining the information with data from other sources.
When information is published in a structured format as open data, it can be utilised in many different ways. For example, applications can combine data from several cities or include data from other sources.
In addition to the API definition, the Six Cities have also created an open source reference implementation of the Open Decision API.
The international Popolo standard, a model for relationships between organisations and people, has been utilised in the information model.
