The Power of Open Data

To demonstrate the power of open data in action, we've created the open dashboard. Whether you are a local, tourist, cyclist or shopper, the open dashboard gives everyone with an interest in Glasgow a uniquely personalised way of looking at the city.

The Open Dashboard put people at the heart of the city allowing you to create your own personalised snapshot of Glasgow. From helping you navigate the city during a busy day to tracking the best times to stargaze at night, this at-a-glance primer will help you get the most out of Glasgow - the best way to keep track of a city where there's always something happening.

Real Time Data in Action

Using open data from a wide variety of sources across the city, users can create or update their own Open Dashboard from a range of digital widgets - or as we like to call them in Glasgow, Weeg-its!

Taking this approach allows maximum flexibility to create a city dashboard bespoke to you, with the ability to easily scale as new data sources become available. Here’s just some of the Weeg-its that are available for use within the dashboard.
