Opening the Vault: Open Data in Queensland
Opening the Vault: Open Data in Queensland was held on Wednesday 3 April 2013 at The Edge, Stanley Place, South Brisbane. Ideas were discussed and shared on how government data could be turned into practical applications for everyday use.
The interactive forum program included panel sessions, guest speakers, case study presentations, networking opportunities and open data exhibits.
Attendees included delegates from industry, development, government, interest groups and the general public.
Submissions were based on ideas or pitches for creative ways that government data could be developed into applications that benefit Queensland. This competition was the start of a conversation around the Queensland Government’s ongoing Open Data revolution.
