Linking and Cleaning of Open Government Data

bachelor study, supervised by Róbert Móro

Open Government Data (OGD) gains more and more popularity around the world. Governments and state institutions work hard to adopt OGD principles into their legislature and disclose datasets to public.

However, the process of disclosing government data is not automated and needs a  manual processing to be done. Manual processing often carries with it an errors spread across datasets. Also, although there is a centralized platform for raw datasets to be published on, some institutions tend to publish datasets on their own sites.

The goal of our project is to provide an intermediary platform, where messy OGD published in several government platforms can be viewed in human-friendly form. Moreover, it hopes to increase popularity of OGD and create more transparent relationship between government and its citizens.
