Guidance for Partners of Multi-Org Open Data Hubs

Blog Post created by jsaligoe-esristaff Employee on Dec 10, 2019

Here are some good practices for partners of data sharing portals built on ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Hub. These guides focus on data management, stewardship, and sharing open data – with a purpose and audience distinctively different from the Help resources you may provide to end-users of your Hub site.


NC OneMap 2.0:  Best Practices for Supplying Data Within the Esri ArcGIS Online Environment guides contributing partners to prepare their data for successful discovery. Includes recommendations for preparing data and metadata and instructions on how to participate and share open data.


Open Data DC: Open Data Handbook a comprehensive guide to policies and guidelines for District data curation and publication. Documents dataset rules, metadata requirements, and policies to make data consistent and standardized, along with the data submission process.


Waikato Data Portal (New Zealand) is a cross-government regional programme. The page offers information about the programme and links to the NZ open data guide.
