With access to open data, citizens can hold their governments accountable – and even play a hand at solving national problems. For example, citizen scientists in the US have leveraged on open government data and created platforms that provide warnings about landslides.

For governments, open data and analytics are key tools for providing insights and enabling good decisions across all levels, at every agency and for every process.

The SAS Visual Analytics platform can help agencies to analyse these data via APIs and make them understandable. Agencies will be able to create simple, interactive reports in whatever format is best suited to their data and intentions, and from these, draw insights and spot trends.
