for a research project we are trying to collect a list of relevant open data systems. I am aware that systems is very broad so I tried to categorize them a bit.

Please help us extending this list with other relevant systems.

Here is what we have collected so far:

Open Data catalog software

Visualization

Collaboration

Databases

    I think this is an excellent questions that should be splitted into questions per type of tool (databases, processing, catalog software) so the conversation remain focused. – magdmartin Mar 10 '14 at 20:04
  • @magdmartin - I added a while back ago a Question and my own Answer to formats for exchanging open data catalogs. - opendata.stackexchange.com/questions/2165/… – Andrew - OpenGeoCode Jul 22 '14 at 17:03
  • Don't forget ArcGIS Open Data as Catalog Software, opendata.arcgis.com Full disclosure: I am a product engineer at ESRI – Daniel Fenton Sep 3 '14 at 20:29

I've compiled a fairly extensive list of open government portals both in US and around the world in the last few days. I am working on code to support crowdsourcing the catalog. I also have a CSV version for download. There is about 700 sites listed so far:

ONLINE CATALOG: http://www.opengeocode.org/opendata/

DOWNLOAD: http://www.opengeocode.org/opendata/opendata.csv

I've setup the catalog for crowdsourcing, so feel free to send us your suggested portals to add to the catalog.

There's an epic list of text-processing and text-mining tools at the Bamboo DiRT wiki. Go to town!

  • These are tools. Asker is asking for data. – Nicolas Raoul Oct 21 '14 at 9:02
  • The initial list contains quite a few tools and tool suites (e.g. under "Data processing" and "Visualization"). I'm not sure how you arrived at your conclusion. – D.Salo Oct 21 '14 at 12:17
  • OK I was mistaken sorry! :-) – Nicolas Raoul Oct 21 '14 at 13:25

Civic Dynamics- CDP is a proven, open-source turnkey software platform for managing and publishing open, community data. It is used for local government data and community indicator systems. It enables the publishing of open data in a dynamic format that allows citizens to easily view, mix, match and download data for analysis, as well as contribute their own information and thoughts - thereby facilitating true citizen engagement. Given these attributes, it is recommended that CDP would fit under two of the identified categories:

  1. Open Data Catalog software: http://civic-dynamics.com/

  2. Visualization:http://civic-dynamics.com/

  • Kelly, so that people are well-informed, we ask that people disclose in each message when they have a relationship w/ a project or company that they're mentioning. (see opendata.stackexchange.com/help/behavior , under 'self-promotion'). You've done it in your user profile, but we ask that people put it specifically in their answers that may have a conflict of interest. – Joe Jul 17 '14 at 3:49

Geonode @ http://geonode.org for the sharing of open geospatial data. Might want to also check out the US governments Open Data Project on github sorry don't have the URL handy

Self serving and a wip, but my baby nevertheless :) (Collaboration)

Exversion is open data infrastructure. It allows people to create data repositories same way they might create code repositories on github (for example) and share this data with everybody or with a select group of individuals. Any additions or changes made to the data are recorded in the version history, can be rolled back and data repos can copied into new branches to produce different versions of the same information. Like I said, work in progress but that's the general idea :)

    Can you expand this so it's more understandable? – Jeanne Holm Jul 23 '14 at 7:34
  • It's not clear to me that Exversion qualifies as an open data system, but maybe if you expanded per Jeanne's recommendation you could explain that to us. – Joe Germuska Jul 23 '14 at 15:41
  • Yeah no prob. Exversion is open data infrastructure. It allows people to create data repositories same way they might create code repositories on github (for example) and share this data with everybody or with a select group of individuals.
