The Federal Source Code Policy is designed to support reuse and public access to custom-developed Federal source code of USA. By making source code available for sharing and re-use across Federal agencies, they can avoid duplicative custom software purchases and promote innovation and collaboration across Federal agencies. By opening more of their code to the brightest minds inside and outside of government, they can enable developers to work together to ensure that the code is reliable and effective in furthering their national objectives. And they can do all of this while remaining consistent with the Federal Government’s long-standing policy of technology neutrality, through which they seek to ensure that Federal investments in IT are merit-based, improve the performance of their government, and create value for the American people.

Open Government, Indonesia

Indonesian Government Open Data.CKAN is a tool for making open data websites. (Think of a content management system like WordPress - but for data, instead of pages and blog posts.) It helps you manage and publish collections of data. It is used by national and local governments, research institutions, and other organizations who collect a lot of data. Once your data is published, users can use its faceted search features to browse and find the data they need, and preview it using maps, graphs and tables - whether they are developers, journalists, researchers, NGOs, citizens, or even your own staff. For CKAN purposes, data is published in units called “datasets”. A dataset is a parcel of data - for example, it could be the crime statistics for a region, the spending figures for a government department, or temperature readings from various weather stations. When users search for data, the search results they see will be individual datasets.
