You can start by testing the viability of our format for your context. That may entail mapping your database’s schema to the Human Services Data Specification.
Then you can write a script to transform your data into this open format. We can likely help you with this process.
Finally, you can publish your now-standardized resource data and work with others in your community to help them use it in new, beneficial ways. If helpful for this purpose, you can deploy an open source resource database (like ORServices), load your transformed data in, and start building new tools that can help people in your community use this data in new ways.
If you have questions about how this work in your community, please reach out to [email protected]
