Open Data

Open data is about increasing transparency and sharing the information that we hold. It is machine-readable structured data, that can be freely shared, used and built on.

The Open Data Charter, which was agreed at the G8 summit held in Fermanagh in June 2013, promotes the publication of public data as open data. In Northern Ireland, the promoting and enabling of open data publications, has been driven by the ‘Open Data Strategy for Northern Ireland 2015-18’ which was endorsed by the Northern Ireland Executive and published in February 2015.

The data on this page is published under the Open Government Licence and is available for you to re-use as you wish, including for commercial and research activities.
