U.S., India Take Step Toward Launching Data.gov in a Box
December 5, 2011
The White House has published the first smatterings of computer code for a project that will grow into a ready-made open government data platform for other nations, White House technology leaders said Monday.
The project, called Data.gov in a Box, is a joint venture between the U.S. and Indian governments and is based on the United States' Data.gov site and India's India.gov.in. The U.S. undertook producing the platform as part of its national commitments under the international Open Government Partnership.
The platform is scheduled to be complete by August 2012.
