Datos libres

El 8 de mayo de este 2013 se publicó un informe o estudio de los beneficios de liberar los datos de satélite. Lo realizó la ESA y esta publicado en http://www.un-spider.org/about-us/news/en/6654/2013-05-14t141300/esa-study-economic-benefits-free-satellite-data.
Solo copio lo que pone que no hace falta traducirlo:

A recent study commissioned by the European Space Agency (ESA) brings forward the idea that data from the upcoming Sentinel series of satellites should be regarded as Public Sector Information, increasing their value for money. The study "About GMES and data: Geese and golden eggs - A study on the Economic Benefits of a Free and Open Data Policy for Sentinel Satellite data" the authors outlined how reusing the data could potentially generate new businesses and jobs, and provide consumers with more choice and more value for money.

The report notes: “GMES may well be Europe’s goose capable of laying golden eggs. But how can we ensure a steady sustainable business model: do we take one egg (direct returns from sales of data) or do we allow the egg to hatch, hoping more golden-egg-laying geese will follow?”

ESA points out: " The free and open data policy for Sentinel data is expected to foster such reuse. In fact, there is evidence that economic benefits are magnified when the data are made available at low or marginal cost, so that entry barriers are minimised also for small and medium enterprises. Several surveys have evidenced this effect for various non-space information sectors, but no such survey exists for Earth observation data.

donde se puede ver un precioso video muy simpático e ilustrativo usando el la idea de los “huevos de oro”. Al final de la página está el enlace para descargar en formato PDF el “Open_SData_Study_Final_Report.pdf”.

Saludos y ¡no os olvidéis de liberar vuestros datos!
