Open Government Data (OGD)
Non-personal and non-infrastructure-critical data inventories are made freely accessible in the interest of the general public
"Open Government" is used as a collective term for a whole raft of different concepts and visions that examine certain facets of an opening of state and administration.
Open Government Data (OGD) are the non-personal and non-infrastructure-critical data inventories that are made freely accessible in the interest of the general public without any restriction regarding free use, dissemination and further use.
