The Data Ethics Canvas is a tool for anyone who collects, shares or uses data, and helps users identify and manage ethical issues throughout the lifetime of a project. It encourages users to ask important questions about projects that utilize data and reflect on the responses. These might include: 1. What is your primary purpose for using data in this project? 2. Who could be negatively affected by this project? The Data Ethics Canvas provides a framework to develop ethical guidance that suits any context, whatever the project’s size or scope. This resource was produced by the Open Data Institute and is also available in Spanish, French and German.
