What is open data?
Our definition of open data
Open data is non-personally identifiable data produced in the course of an organisation’s ordinary business, which has been released under an unrestricted licence (like the Open Government Licence).
Open public data is underpinned by the philosophy that data generated or collected by organisations in the public sector should belong to the taxpayers, wherever financially feasible and where releasing it won’t violate any laws or rights to privacy (either for citizens or government staff).
This definition will undoubtedly be refined by our community as LinkedGov grows and progresses.
