The California Open Data Handbook

The California Open Data Handbook provides guidelines to identify, review, prioritize and prepare publishable data for access by the public and government entities via an open data portal or open data site. A foundational emphasis has been placed on value, quality, data and metadata standards, and governance. This handbook is meant to serve as a resource for organizations and is also freely offered to any party that may be interested in improving the online access of publishable and machine-readable data. It will also provide an understanding of the processes by which portal owners and its contributing partners make data available for publishing. The handbook focuses on general guidelines and thought processes but also provides linked tools/resources that operationalize those processes.
