About Calderdale Data Works

 

Calderdale Data Works provides open data which is freely available and can be used by anyone to use and republish, without restrictions.

We want Calderdale to become a technical and digital hub and Open Data is a big part of that. Collaboration is key to delivering big priorities like economic growth, social inclusion and public service transformation.

Our Data, Our Stories

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build relationships with local innovators, develop our digital strategy and release open data sets. These are being used alongside new technologies to change people’s expectations about their relationship with Calderdale Council, see Digital and ICT strategy 2015-2020 .

We hold massive amounts of information and we want residents and businesses to benefit by making this more widely and easily available on this platform.

We are updating information regularly so keep checking back for the latest data. Ask us a question, let us know what else you’d like us to publish, share your ideas or submit your own data – Get Involved

We’re passionate about data and we’ll be using our blog to tell the stories of how open data can be used to improve, innovate and transform services. You’ll also be able to keep in touch with latest digital events and projects in Calderdale and the Leeds City Region.

Who we are

Calderdale Data Works is owned and managed by Calderdale Council.  Our Open Data platform is built with CKAN and developed by DataPress, who connect open data publishers with their local communities and whose engagement platform powers both the London DataStore and the Leeds Data Mill.

We are a founding member of the Open Data institute (ODI) – Leeds and are working closely with them and other partners on a range of Open Data projects.  More information about the projects and innovation taking place with the ODI can be found at Leeds ODI projects.
