What is the OI London? :: Open Institute London
London has plans to develop an OI – an ambitious infrastructure that seeks to offer new opportunities for Open education, enterprise, and everyday life for its citizens.
This could be achieved via a range of shared resources; spaces, tools, and platforms. Which are then put them in a commons, where anyone can access them.
The first instance of the OI is being developed in London, backed by £50m investment from the government. And the institution itself will be shared so that other cities can create their own OI.

Observing London | Publications | London Climate Change Partnership
London has a surprising amount of weather data – about 260 stations that measure some aspect of London’s atmosphere, including rainfall, temperature and air quality. These are operated by a wide range of organisations and individual volunteers, however, there is a general consensus that:

the data are not available at a high enough density across the city
many users cannot take full advantage of the data collected because they are not discoverable nor available in quality controlled, easily accessible formats online
Observing London makes the case that we could and should harness this wealth of information, most notably through the creation of a focused weather portal for London.
