The true power of open-linked data

Tony Hirst has just posted an excellent article demonstrating how open-linked data and mash-up tools can transform the presentation and hence the value of information “Visualising MPs’ Expenses Using Scatter Plots, Charts and Maps”. MP’s expenses are a hot topic in the UK at the moment and a spreadsheet of them was posted by the Guardian. Tony Hirst shows the challenges and successes of using open-source tools to present this data in ways that make it much more usable. When I think of how much the first Executive Information Systems cost in the 1990s! The would make an excellent case for Online Information 2009 – and we will be tapping Tony on the shoulder!
