If you have any thoughts or ideas about how we could improve Open Kent, or any issues with the website, please contact us.
If you're curious about how you could use the information you've found here, you may want to see what others have done with it. If you have created something using the data, we'd love to know, leave a comment or drop us a line.
Click on the images to activate the visualisations. We'll be adding more soon! We'd love your feedback as to the best way we can showcase them, so do let us know.
The majority of the data we currently have made available is information on what local public services spend, which you can search here. This includes both invoices they pay and grants they provide. Below is an example of a visualisation on this type of data. If you would a like a more comprehensive overview, take a look here at other uses of spending data. We'll be adding more soon!
We have a range of data that we are continuously updating on where local public services are based in Kent. Below is an example of a visualisation of this data on schools in Kent. Developers have already created visualisations of these which you can see here.
We have started opening up data on traffic and travel. Because it is picking up live information from sensors on the roads across the county, you can only view it as feeds (go here and search for traffic). If you are a developer, we'd love to see what you can do with this data.
As well as opening up data on what we spend and where our services are based, we'll be publishing data on how we perform. Here is an example below but if you want to see more visualisations on performance see here.
