WHAT IS OPEN DATA DAY?
Open Data Day is an annual celebration of open data all over the world. In its tenth year, groups from around the world will create local events on the day where they will use open data in their communities. It is an opportunity to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society.
