Open data is basically data which is generated by state services and made available to the public.

This then can be parsed, and if released in digital format can provide value add. This books is a series of essays by participants who are involved in this, and provide practical examples on how Open data is used. For instance in London, there is how Crime and Traffic information being made available in the London Datastore site as part of a drive to improve civic innovation.

Overall an interesting read.
