Global Open Data Index
The Global Open Data Index is a civil society collaborative effort to track the state of open government data around the world. The survey is designed to assess the openness of specific government datasets according to the Open Definition. Through this initiative we want to provide a civil society audit of how governments actually publish data with input and review from citizens and organisations
