The amount of data that the public sector holds is continually growing. The data ranges from sensitive personal information held to allow delivery of personalised services (e.g. health and social care) to non-personal information (e.g. environmental data). This data has value for the organisation collecting and holding it but there is potential to add value by making appropriate data available to others to re-use. We call this making data “open”.
