Update: Examples of Brighton and Hove data

Some helpful work by a number of #ODBH members – particularly by Paul Brewer (@pdbrewer) – has inspired me to compile in one post some of the links that have been tweeted by various people since last week’s meeting.

Most recently, with an appeal for people to research the websites of all Brighton and Hove public organisations, Paul has made an impressive start on an “Open Data Wikilist“.

Glyn Huelin (@glynhuelin): 2003 election results in a datasheet. He sourced these from PoliticsResources.net.

This fits nicely with Paul’s work on the 2007 election results in Brighton and Hove. Which were sourced from here, on the city council’s website.

Paul also re-processed school-level GCSE results trends 2007-2010.

That’s all for now. But lots more to come, I’m sure.

    Would be useful to know how to drill down into tables where possible e.g. Planning Application http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/index.cfm?request=c1199915 gives an accept terms page

    (You can bypass by going to http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/index.cfm?request=c1199915&action=showForm&showTrees=0)

    The resulting a form gives you various options allowing you to search applications by area, date, type etc.

    It would be good to know how to override the form by adding a search term to give you selected results automatically, say just planning applications for Brunswick Town e.g. request=c1199915&action=SearchByFilter&conservation=BRUNSWICK TOWN
