Abstract:


Complementing studies on the economic impact of Open Government Data (OGD), we investigate how this novel Webenabled movement supports sustainability. An analysis of OGDbased applications reveals that: (1) OGD supports all three pillars of sustainability; (2) citizens and app developers alike are receptive and motivated by sustainability implications of OGD; and (3) few regional differences exist between Vienna and New York City. We derive recommendations for further improving the sustainability impact of OGD.
