Abstract

A data observatory for a local government authority in Scotland was developed in collaboration with university researchers and other stakeholders. The data observatory provided a platform to extract, analyse and view data from various databases. The data observatory was created using standard web tools. One component of the observatory, the DataHub, is provided as a case study. It was developed in partnership with other agencies and produced new information on school leaver destinations. After two years the project paid for itself in terms of staff time saved. Lessons learned about setting up a city-wide data observatory are provided.
