Abstract

Web 2.0 has changed the way that information is presented to people. Public administrations have an important role to play in this new era. Global institutions, central, regional and local governments gather and produce a wide variety of information that is potentially reusable by citizens and the digital content industry. Gov 2.0 follows the approach of giving access to open public data to citizens. Open Government Data (OGD) establishes the principles for providing public data to the public. The development of innovative applications by companies or individuals from these public records, will meet the demand of information from citizens, as well as developing the basic principles of transparency, publication and reutilization. We present a local administration experience showing the steps to implement the OGD strategy. Benefits and responsibilities of those involved in the full process are presented. We have developed a real case of publicly available data from the population census of the municipality.
