The importance of data as a community resource is increasing. Therefore, the City of Stockholm will open data in order to make it more accessible. If more actors can access the data of the city, more new smarter services can be developed.
Open data is data that anyone can access while developing new, digital services.
The City of Stockholm seeks to make its data available in a standardised way, so that external developers have the possibility to freely use data while developing new applications and other digital services.
The City of Stockholm has far reaching goals regarding open data and the area is addressed in several ways.
New open data from the city’s different agencies is currently made available on dataportalen.stockholm.se. The city also has an ongoing undertaking to visualise the city’s open data to increase accessibility for developers and citizens.
The city is also developing a new portal for open and shared data. Real time data, such as traffic data from Stockholm, can be published as open data in the new data portal when it is in place.
In the new platform for IoT, the data portal will be integrated, allowing inflowing data to the platform to be published as open data. The function will be built into the system architecture of the platform and data portal. The platform can for example be used to handle large streams of data from the connected sensors in the city.
The City of Stockholm is also leading the undertaking of open data on a regional level in Storsthlm, a collaborative project with all municipalities within the area of Stockholm. The Project Increased Usage of Open Data in the Region of Stockholm (ÖDIS), aims to enable growth and innovation for small and medium-sized enterprises. Together with the other municipalities in the region of Stockholm, the project will offer open data through standardised APÌ in a new regional data portal.
