Be smart with data! [HU/EN]
The aim of the Be smart with data! project is to promote and encourage the use of (open) data in the Hungarian civil society, and to develop CSOs’ capacities in working with data.
Every 31st January from midnight to dawn we run a data crowdsourcing event - we complete a task the Parliament should do: create an open and searchable database of the asset declarations of MPs.
On 31 January midnight the Hungarian Parliament publishes the asset declarations of MP-s on its website. These are mostly handwritten PDF documents that are almost useless for comparison and monitoring.
To change this, on 31 January night in some hours’ time with the help of our colleagues, friends and volunteers we turn the freshly published PDFs into an open database. In cooperation with TransparenCEE and the Engine Room a pilot program has been created to microtask the work.
