    Symposium summary
    At the outset of the OpenDataMonitor project we wanted to ensure that both the research undertaken and the platform developed met the needs of the various open data actors in the community. We were also committed to a targeted dissemination strategy that achieved maximum impact.
    In addition to sharing our insights and findings, we were determined that the project not be developed in isolation, but formed part of a wider ‘pipeline’ of tools and resources to support the open data community. Creating a product that would educate and inform users and continue to be resourced after project completion was a significant component of our exploitation and sustainability strategy. In short, we wanted to create a sustainable legacy.

    Publications, conferences and concentration actions
    The aim of the dissemination in the OpenDataMonitor project was to deploy the most efficient outreach activities to disseminate the project’s outcomes to our target audiences. The goals were to: - ensure on-going awareness of the project among open data publishers, consumers and wider stakeholders across Europe so that the platform is adopted by the community and continues to have an impact after project completion; - directly engage with relevant communities and act on feedback from them in the development of the ODM platform; - share relevant research findings and innovative concepts that were achieved during the project with the scientific community through publications and conference papers. In addition, project partners contributed to and participated in focused concertation actions, themed seminars or special interest groups.

    Instruction and Training Report
    The main goal of task 4.4 was to ensure that the created materials in D4.3 support end users in an ideal way and to allow all kinds of users to benefit from the OpenDataMonitor. In addition we also had the intention to create a useful resource holding all relevant research outcomes and technical outputs of the project and provide it in a highly usable way to the community. Therefore the OpenDataMonitor Knowledge Base which was introduced in D3.4 was massively improved and extended. This report gives an overview on the created instructions and training materials that were conducted during the last project phase. In addition it provides more insights on the generated content and how it is presented to ensure that the outcomes of the OpenDataMonitor can be used efficiently by the users also after the official project end.

    Visualisations, dashboards and multilingual interface status report 2
    In the course of the OpenDataMonitor a number of technological artefacts have been developed. These are meant to be used and further developed not only by people involved with the project, but a wider audience. Therefore it is necessary to let others understand what ODM artefacts can do and how they can use them. As different as the artefacts are the audiences. Therefore the user manuals need to take into consideration what the potential use of an artefact can be, who the potential users are, and what level of expertise might be expected. A general distinction can be made between the front-end demonstration platform and the back-end components. In order to identify artefacts suitable for further use and re-use, we consider the components outlined for exploitation in D5.9 (OpenDataMonitor Project 2015c). To adapt the screencasts and manuals to the user interests and expertise, we refer to the stakeholder studies conducted in the course of the project (OpenDataMonitor Project 2014, 2015a).

    Advanced benchmarking, reporting and analytical feature description
    The OpenDataMonitor (ODM) project has developed the ODM platform (http://opendatamonitor.eu) to harvest, harmonise and visualise the open data catalogues across Europe, which presents an overview of the open data ecosystem. In the second half of the project, as more feedbacks are collected from open data stakeholders in Alpha release (February 2015) and Beta release (June 2015), a series of enhancements and advanced features are added to further meet user requirements. The research has been focusing on defining benchmark metrics both quantitatively and qualitatively. Advanced benchmarking, advanced search and social plugin features are integrated into the platform.

    Visualisations, dashboards and multilingual interface status report 2
    The purpose of this document is to provide a second status report on the implementation of OpenDataMonitor end‐user interfaces including planned dashboards, visualisation elements and other features. This report will follow up the recent implementation achievements. The target audience of this report include project partners, the European Commission and relevant audiences with technical knowledge of open data and software development concepts.

    Tool architecture and components/plugins programming status report 2
    This document focuses on the overall architecture of the ODM platform, and specifically it reports the status of the implementation for each of the main components involved. It constitutes a followup of the respective Deliverable D3.3 (which covered the work up to M12 of the project), presenting the extended and new functionalities added to the ODM platform components during the second year of the project.

    Open Data Stakeholder Requirement Report 2
    This report explores and analyses the roles, interests and understandings of the various stakeholders in the open data ecosystem. The goal is to identify patterns of understandings and interests in order to serve these stakeholders’ information needs through the OpenDataMonitor platform. Stakeholders around open data can be found within public administrations (e.g. public managers, data generators, open data strategists) as well as outside public administrations (e.g. open data users, activists) and at the general policy level, the policy level of a specific instantiation of open data (e.g. a national or local project or catalogue) or at the operational level, a taxonomy developed in the first iteration of this report.

    Deployment of the tool demonstrator finished
    This report accompanies the first prototype of the ODM demonstrator, the system being developed to provide the aforementioned capabilities. The prototype includes components for registering open data catalogues for monitoring, harvesting metadata from them, cleaning and harmonising metadata attributes and values, and finally computing and presenting, through a RESTful API, a set of predefined metrics. Detailed information regarding the architecture of the ODM system and its components, as well as the current status of the implementation, can be found in Deliverables D3.1 and D3.3, respectively. The purpose of this report is to provide information about the current deployment of the demonstrator and instructions for setting up and using the software.

    This report provides a status report on the implementation of Open Data Monitor end‐user interfaces including planned dashboards, visualisation elements, reporting capabilities and other basic features. This report requires knowledge of software engineering and general information about the domain of application (Open Data Landscape). The target audience of this report include project partners, the European Commission and relevant audiences with technical knowledge of open data and software development concepts.

    Best Practice Visualisation, Dashboards and Key Figures
    The primary aims of this report are to: (1) present a set of metrics relevant to understanding trends in open data deployment – these will form the basis for the analytics provided in the platform; (2) detail the visualisation techniques that may be used to present these metrics, and their underlying trends, in visual form; (3) recommend how these visualisations may be combined into dashboards for presentation to end users.

    Open Data Topologies, Catalogues and Metadata Harmonization
    This report overviews the landscape of open data, principally in Europe, and is therefore closely related to other deliverables in WP2 (Research studies and stakeholder analysis). In general, this report lists and analyses resources covering different aspects of open data, which kicksstarts the directions that other deliverables will take up for deep analysis in WP2.
