Welcome to the DemocracyMap Technical Working Group

Join us if you are interested in exploring the technical details of an open data set(s) for "democracy maps." This includes being able to look-up by location or a map all government jurisdictions (including website(s) and other contact information) and eventually public officials that represent you.

This exploration, hosted by OpenPlans and E-Democracy, openly invites government organizations, inter-governmental associations, non-profits, commercial interests, and individuals interested in widely accessible data and open government to join.
