DKAN Values

DKAN is guided by these core values.

 

Empowerment

DKAN empowers data publishers to easily share their data, empowers policymakers to make good, data-driven decisions, and empowers citizens to hold accountable the institutions that serve them.

Transparency and Openness

Driven by a transparent, engaging development process that advocates and enables transparency in our institutions, DKAN is open source, openly managed, and compliant with open standards.

Collaboration and Creativity

By working together, we can bring our unique skills, experience, and perspective to use data in ways none of us could have envisioned alone. Open data reveals a world of possibility, and DKAN is here to help us make the most of it.

Inclusiveness and Accessibility

Open data allows users from all walks of life to learn about and contribute to their communities. Academic researchers, policymakers, journalists and everyday citizens alike can all access and benefit from standardized, readily-accessible, machine-readable data. DKAN will always be free, easy-to-use for data publishers and data consumers, provide multilingual support, and will always strive to meet the needs of those with disabilities to ensure DKAN is accessible to all.

Sustainability and Extensibility

DKAN will provide a sustainable open data ecosystem, keeping information up-to-date and use modern, forward-thinking technology that grows as we do. Opening data is just the first step, after that it is all about what we do with it. There are many amazing tools out there, and DKAN should be able to help you work with any tool you need.
