Opening Up Legislative Bodies

There are a number of projects around the world aimed at opening up the legislative process through creative re-use of the records produced by parliaments, congresses etc. It is worth looking at some of these power of information exemplars.

UK – TheyWorkForYou.com

US – OpenCongress.org

EU – IPPR-MEP.eu (How MEPs Work)

Australia – OpenAustralia.org

There are some interesting lessons to take away from the approaches taken by each project to sourcing, mixing and presenting data.
