US Open Data Usage:
Interactive Database on U.S. Companies' Usage of Open Government Data
The GovLab maintains The Open Data 500, "the first comprehensive study of U.S. companies that use open government data to generate new business and develop new products and services". In line with the spirit of their research, all the data is released freely.
When we hear free, public and open data, here at Silk we start to get excited, and so we decided to import this dataset into Silk, creating an interactive, searchable and easy-to-visualize DB of US companies' open government data usage. Use this resource to investigate how private and public firms engage with open government data: from their market categories, to the type of projects; from the topic of the datasets they use, to the government agencies and sub agencies that compiled them...and much more!
