Thank you @rufuspollock, I would love to contribute the data of Nepal in the main site.
At first, my plan was to only collect and contribute data in the main site, but after working and researching since month I found that the Nepal Government working hierarchy don’t match with the others country and the reason behind this are many. I also think that the global publicbodies site lacks those datasets filtering techniques.
What really I am planning for our local project:
- Visitors will be able to filter the datasets using 4 different ways: a) District wise, b) Ministry wise c) Alphabetically d) Tags wise
- District Wise filtration technique will be embedded in maps (So that visitors can use it visually) and for Ministry wise filtration, we will be using blocks (Almost same blocks which can be found at main publicbodies site) and for others two, we will be using normal filtration technique.
- Plan is to add contribution page in the site, so that interested contributors can contribute data easily.
- Discussion with Open Street Map and Nepal Wikipedia community is ongoing, if everything went right, maps and wiki page of an publicbodies will also be added.
We had almost completed the coding and designing of the site and had followed the guidelines of Open Knowledge International while designing it. and now waiting Open Data Day 2016, where we will be running Datathon for its data collection. A separate team will be working for its development and data sourcing in the beginning, and will be using crowd source technique for its data collection.
Reps of Nepal Government will be working and helping us throughout the process and we plan to make some ministry as an collaborator, so that we can make project sustainable and impactful.
I will be starting the new issue in the github soon and the plan of sub-domain (np.publicbodies.org) sounds really amazing. I will discuss about it, with my teams and will finalized about it.
