This three year project will explore open data best practices, policy and delivery options in a rural setting.

Our primary focus is on regional and municipal governments in southeastern British Columbia.

This survey will help us better understand: 1. The current level of awareness of, interest in, and concerns with open data in rural BC from perspective of both data producers and data users; 2. The factors motivating and supporting the current and potential supply and use of open government data; and 3. Priority data types and methods.
