Data Ethics Canvas
The Data Ethics Canvas is a tool for anyone who collects, shares or uses data. It helps identify and manage ethical issues – at the start of a project that uses data, and throughout.
It encourages you to ask important questions about projects that use data, and reflect on the responses and according to the Open Data Institute the Data Ethics Canvas provides a framework to develop ethical guidance that suits any context, whatever the project’s size or scope.
The Data Ethics Canvas is based on the Ethics Canvas, a higher-level framework for assessing the ethical implications of any project, developed by the ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technology. The ADAPT Centre’s Ethics Canvas is itself based on the original Business Model Canvas by Alex Osterwalder
The Open Data Institute defines data ethics as: ‘A branch of ethics that evaluates data practices with the potential to adversely impact on people and society – in data collection, sharing and use’
