Open Data und Geodata
Open Data means that certain data - mainly public - should be freely available to everyone to use as they wish.
The potential benefits to the economy can be found especially in the areas of health, traffic, energy and environmental protection, but also in gaining transparency and inspiring civic participation.
Being a partner in the "Geodateninfrastruktur Standort Tirol" (Geodata infrastructure location of Tyrol) project, Standortagentur Tirol together with its cluster members is working on technical, legal and organisational foundations to make public administrative data regarding geodata useful: new business models using OGD should inspire cross-industry cooperation and help increase the wealth of data. New products and services should strengthen Tyrol as a service location as well as create jobs and added value.
Privacy and data protection are integral features of Open Government Data These principles should be coordinated and implemented in the IT Cluster Tyrol in accordance with applicable law, technological possibilities and organisational procedures. The cluster members and partners have the competence to check regularly and as required that data is being handled correctly.
