What is Open data?

Open data refers to the release of government data, with an open licence, which is free of charge for anyone to use and reuse for any purpose.

Open data is provided in accessible formats, meaning that it is machine readable and is structured in a logical way. For numerical tabular files (spreadsheets), some common open formats include XLS or CSV. For text files, common formats include TXT.

For answers to some other questions around Open data, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

Open data products

Products within the Open Data webpage consist of datasets, which are collections of data, and the applications built from these datasets.

The datasets are sourced directly from Government Departments and Agencies and can be tabular (tables of data, such as ferry on-time records) or spatial (based on mapping files, such as zone boundaries or location of hospitals).
