States urged to create data catalogs

States urged to create data catalogs, by Joab Jackson, Federal Computer Week (Oct 07, 2009).

Federal agencies shouldn’t be the only ones to open their data for the public — states and local governments should also be ramping up efforts to become more transparent, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) contends in a newly published report.

The first thing a state should do is create a one-stop portal, or data catalog, for all its publicly-accessible data, along the lines of the White House’s Data.Gov , the report states.
