For the ODE II (Dutch) project, an analysis is made of written questions of the Amsterdam municipality (Dutch). By this analysis, we hope to show the value of open data in the context of transparency and democracy. Additionally, to further exemplify the use of open data, the Dutch Parliamentary Proceedings are analysed as well. For an overview of developed applications and analysis, see the overview M3
We do this by creating an automated textual interpretation of the data. Each document is summarised by its most relevant terms and detection of named entities therein.
A blog on specific topics of interest can be found at http://politicalmashup.nl/category/ode/.
A presentation (Dutch) for the Registry of the Amsterdam City Council gives an overview of the work done within this Work Package.
Three deliverable milestones are defined, each detailing part of the analysis.
The presentation of the data and analysis is built on eXist, an XML database. It is both available running online, and as apps to download and install locally.
codeThe code is available on https://github.com/nusselder/politicalmashup as part of the Political Mashup exist collection, on which the ODE app is dependent. It contains updates to the app from M1 and the toolset from M2.
Some additional work has been done on a recommender for Amsterdam Venues.
