After a review of the initial information presented in the 2016 Mexico submissions for the GODI, submitters from civil society - Sergio Araiza- and responsibles of the open data initiative in México - Enrique Zapata-, got together to dialogue, analyze and perfect the information presented in these first submissions.
This is an example of the value and benefits that the Index can bring to get civil society, citizens and government together to discuss opportunity areas for open data in the country, understand different views regarding a single issue, and agree on next steps and actions to continue working towards a robust and strengthened ecosystem in Mexico.
After these analyses, we would like to kindly request the GODI to take into account the following clarifications:
Inclusion of three new datasets that reflect the GODIs requested dimensions for national maps:
Open Data Portal, Spatial Data: datos.gob.mx/busca/dataset/red-nacional-de-caminos
Open Data Portal, Water Stretches: datos.gob.mx/busca/dataset/cuerpos-de-agua
National Borders: inegi.org.mx/geo/contenidos/geoestadistica/M_Geoestadistico.aspx
Question B6, change to ‘yes’, data is updated at least every year
Question B8, include available formats: SHP and KML
