Data Contribution

La vs Datasets Example

What does this show?

The data contribution matrix shows which local authorities have provided data or responses for each Spatial Hub dataset.

More specifically:

  • a "data provided" or "this local authority doesn't have these features" contribution (GREEN),
  • no data or response provided (RED),
  • a response suggesting that "this local authority does not capture and/ or digitise this data at this time" (YELLOW)

Because of the lack of any standards for much of the data received, a lot of time and resources is needed to process it. Some datasets are only updated once a year (see metadata for details). Therefore, the matrix may not represent the current state of the published national datasets.
