We have developed CitySDK with some clear principles which will enable users of the toolkit to be reassured about using it.
Online – resources are freely available and online
Accessible – the project uses open data and source code is made available through Github through open licenses. Where there is a requirement to register to an API or service this is to ensure we can provide the necessary support to users, and ensure consistency of service for existing users.
Reliable – these APIs have been tested with the partner cities and so have been through a number of quality control processes to get to this point.
Commitment – partner cities commitment to the project means that the majority of open data sets required are already available and in a trusted format
Best Practice – we are committed to developing best practice examples, for instance through the adoption of particular standards or processes
