Índice de dados abertos para cidades: São Paulo - SP


Data is considered open when anyone is free to access, modify, and share it, subject at the most, to measures which preserve its origin or disclosure. The Open Knowledge Foundation developed the global Open Data Index (ODI) to compare countries in terms of their capacity to open data to individuals, the media, and civil society. The information which composes the index is obtained via a crowd-sourced platform, in other words, from the contributions of local agents linked to the OKFN network in each country, and afterwards revised by open data specialists in each country, producing as a final result a ranking of countries. The aim of the index is to assess the state of open data policies in each country, taking into account all their characteristics: the type of data released, the formats, access, and the transformation of data into information, amongst others. The index assesses various dimensions, such as public finances, socio-economic, legislative, and electoral data, public services, geo-located information, and environmental indicators. The index thus offers a reference parameter to all countries about the capacity to provide open data, presenting this information in a clear and easy way of understanding and using, something that is in harmony with FGV/DAPP’s Transparency mission.
