“Smart policies depend on quality data, and public data should be accessible to the public in meaningful ways using modern digital tools,” said agency Chairman Julius Genachowski.

As part of the initiative, the FCC’s Wireline, Wireless and Media bureaus today are releasing public notices seeking input on what current data collections should be eliminated, what new ones should be added, and how existing collections can be improved. The public notices will also include inventories of the Bureaus’ current data collection. The notices grow out of a recent agency-wide survey led by the FCC’s Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis.

Greg Elin, associate managing director of new media at the FCC, was named chief data officer.

In addition, Michael Byrne has been appointed FCC’s first geographic information officer. He will lead the FCC’s work with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration in creating a comprehensive national broadband map and develop practices for improving the FCC’s use of geographic information.
