Open Data Barometer – Impact of data
Produced by the World Wide Web Foundation as a collaborative work of the Open Data for Development (OD4D) network and with the support of the Omidyar Network, the Open Data Barometer (ODB) aims to uncover the true prevalence and impact of open data initiatives around the world. It analyses global trends, and provides comparative data on countries and regions using an in-depth methodology that combines contextual data, technical assessments and secondary indicators.
It covers 92 countries and ranks nations on:
- Readiness for open data initiatives
- Implementation of open data programmes
- Impact that open data is having on business, politics and civil society
It is an organized global collaborative effort, with input from more than 150 researchers and government representatives.

The potential impact of Open Data on Vineyards and Sustainable Entrepreneurship
You, as an entrepreneur that wants to growth his business and promote his product, you seek for potential ways to increase your profit. What if you use open data? How? Take a look here at the Vinyards in Greece, mapped with the Biomass produced by grapes (in TN) and the estimated Bioenergy that can be generated (EN) from the biomass.
The more reddish the bubble is, the more energy can be produced. The bigger the bubble is, the more biomass is created. So why wait? Take advantage of that and make a plan to create a biomass unit to exploit all the production chain.
