New Open Data Portal launched in Northern Ireland

www.opendatani.gov.uk gives users access to government data freely

The Open Data portal joins up access to data across a range of themes, including health; education; employment and the economy; population and society; property and land; and environment and agriculture.

Finance minister Arlene Foster officially launched the portal and told representatives from the private and public sectors and academia about its benefits: "The Northern Ireland Open Data portal is a place to publish, share and find public sector information. This open access aims to transform current public sector data management practices and create an 'open by default' culture within the Northern Ireland public sector," she said.

The Northern Ireland portal will be featured on the European Data Portal soon.
