Downloading, mashing and remixing our collection metadata

November 3rd, 2009 by Seb Chan

As you may know, we released our collection metadata a little while back as a downloadable archive. It is linked from both the NSW Government as well as the Federal Government‘s Data Catalogues.

This has enabled it to be used in the current Mashup Australia contest and related Hack Day events and for the forthcoming Apps4NSW contest.

Luke Dearnley was recorded by Sarah Rhodes for the Govhack event in Canberra last week in the video above. You might notice Luke’s resemblance to the historical figure from the Smithsonian’s Flickr Commons collection in the background. Spooky.

If you do end up making cool things like BuildAR, Paul Hagon and ABC Innovation have done with our open data then please tell us!

And don’t forget to enter your mashups in those contests!
