This roadmap has been designed to support government officials who are helping their
organisations to adopt and implement the principles of the Open Data Charter. It’s also
relevant to non-governmental organisations and businesses interested in supporting the
implementation of open data policies.
There are a number of existing tools that assess open data initiatives. But organisations
often need guidance, in the form of a recommended action plan, that will help them
begin the process of implementing the Charter principles.
This document provides a suggested roadmap. It is intended to act as a reference for
governments officials to turn the Charter principles into a set of concrete actions that can
help plan and improve open data practice. It should be read alongside the Activities
Table setting out specific actions that governments should consider following.
