United Kingdom government is also pioneer of open data, there are more then 40,000 datasets in website https://data.gov.uk , it uses CKAN as public dataset platform link U.S.A., Taiwan and Hong Kong.

I use CKAN API package_list to get the whole datasets list and package_show to show every dataset's detail, just like the Hong Kong Open Data site:

Today, I import a dataset as example: Schools in England, the downloaded Excel file have more then 30 fields, so I spend a whole day to create table in MySQL database, import converted CSV files, build views and pages in Drupal etc.

The process method is not very difficult, but we should spend more time to search what's the valuable data for users and how to let user find and use data conveniently.
