What was the issue?
The Berlin districts publish regular reports on the socio-economic situation of their district regions (“Bezirksregionenprofile”). These reports contain relevant information and data – but in long, unwieldy PDF documents. We were building a tool that presents these reports interactively and makes the underlying data more accessible for further use.
Conclusion and results
The team of the Open Data Informationsstelle has developed a prototype which is now being tested together with the data coordination of the district office Tempelhof-Schöneberg. The prototype is fed with real data and at the same time tested for its usability.
How can I join in?
The code of the tool is open source and can be found on GitHub – anyone can use it further or make suggestions for improvements. If you are interested to try the tool and give us feedback, feel free to contact us anytime!
