Submission + - Vancouver Mulls Making itself an 'Open City'

citylivin writes: Vancouver residents and businesses would benefit if the city made the data it collects open and accessible to everyone wherever possible, a city councillor says. By using open standards to help make that data available to the public, the city would improve transparency, cut costs and enable people to use the data to create new useful products, including commercial ones, said Coun. Andrea Reimer in a motion read before city council on Tuesday. The motion calls for the city to endorse the principles of: * Making data open and accessible by sharing as much of it as possible while respecting privacy and security concerns. * Adopting open standards for data, documents, maps and other media. * Placing open source software on equal footing with "commercial systems."
