What data should we ask local councils for?

Local councils are also another important data source. GovHack Wellington team is working directly with WCC to make their data available, but what else do people want?

Rating valuation data by property

Non-private Rating Valuation data, preferably aggregated nationally. there are huge benefits to be gained nationally and they need to be unlocked urgently. It is all public data.

How about air quality data? I think that this is collected by the regional councils. Is it aggregated by another agency nationally?

Awesome, keep 'em coming!

Thanks Peter. Am I correct in thinking that currently QV are the only ones aggregating the property data nationally?

There is an issue with QV - they appear to be intending to turn the data into a saleable asset, although it is, as Joe says, public data.

From David Preece: @davidpreece on NZQA
“Presumably the roads are regularly surveyed to establish which bits need to be fixed. Can we get data for which pieces of which roads are good/bad/terrible?”

Should get data on this from local & regional councils too

To see what data others have requested from government and the responses given see: https://data.govt.nz/requests

Property and rating valuation data has been sought for a long time: https://data.govt.nz/datasetrequest/show/3
