To provide a better picture about status of OpenData in countries where COMSODE consortium members are located, here comes a basic comparison of the amount of published datasets in national data catalogs.
For the sake of speed and efficiency, I’m including numbers from catalogs which provide publicly accessible API: Czech Republic (CZ), Italy (IT) and Slovakia (SK).
To have better reference, also numbers from Austria (AT) and UK data catalogs are included.
|number of datasets||195||6644||205||1043||16662|
|number of resources||1689||87073||512||11164||113544|
|number of datasets with open license||22 (11.3%)||1102 (16.6%)||1 (0.5%)||1041 (99.8%)||8723 (52.4%)|
|number of datasets without open license||173||5542||204||2||7939|
- Czech Republic and Slovakia are far behind others when it comes to both total number of datasets and number of datasets with open license, with UK taking the lead.
- Austria has almost all of its datasets clearly marked with open license.
- There is a big difference between Slovakia and Czech Republic when it comes to number of resources. While number of datasets is similar, this may be attributed to different dataset cataloging methodologies being applied in both countries.
Sources and methodology
API of each particular data catalog was used:
Counts are obtained using simple “list” and “search” queries, no filtering or evaluation applied.
Whether the dataset is licensed under open license is determined using “isopen=true” attribute.
