The end of 2018 will mark 10 years since the idea of open data started to gain global traction, and the open data community has grown significantly over this past decade. Working to simply make data publicly available is no longer the sole focus of every conversation, program, or initiative related to open data. The movement is shifting to building open data initiatives that target real world problems or embed open data into existing sectoral or interest-based communities of practice. An increasingly sophisticated network of projects, initiatives, and community collaborations have begun to make data truly useful in addressing a myriad of issues facing citizens and their governments around the world.
