Steps to making our data open and accessible

The Council is moving on with its project to make council data available as open data. Our aim is to make

as much open data available for free. However, there is some policy work, which includes sorting out IPR issues and which licensing to use.

However, work is going on at the same time to abstract operations data which is not currently published. This is being used to test ways of publishing data in formats which will encourage re-use, such as XML, JSON and RDF.

The current Open Data web page on birmingham.gov.uk will be replaced with a platform to provide a repository for open data as well as additional information and services, such as metadata. If you want to find out more about this project or get involved please contact raj.s.mack@birmingham.gov.uk
