Public sector open data sets are published on the data.gov.gr central portal. There exist also other public sector websites which publish open data.
Within the context of the implementation and operation of the Greek Government G-Cloud Datacenter, a new central site will be implemented for gathering, storing, disposing and searching open data and linked open data. It will consist of the open data portal data.gov.gr serving citizens and businesses for data retrieval, the website submit.data.gov.gr serving authorized officials in documenting, describing and disposing open data, and a set of specialized tools that through published APIs will deliver all necessary interoperability services for extracting information from systems, devices, applications and third party platforms. Thus the platform will (automatically) collect through standardized processes data generated from the IT systems of public bodies, and will make it available to citizens and businesses.
Access to information, Technology & innovation for transparency & accountability
Implementation: Ministry of Administrative Reform and e-Governance, Information Society S.A.
The main objective is to create the necessary technical infrastructure for management and publication of linked open data. The platform will provide apart from the websites data.gov.gr and submit.data.gov.gr, a set of specific tools and APIs to achieve interoperability with different information systems and also for gathering data in order to be published.
Means for implementation
The main instrument for implementing the commitment is the G-Cloud contract, through which the Open Linked Data platform will be implemented.
