Pune became the first city in India to launch an open data portal that provides free access to real-time civic data for all. This means anyone interested in getting any data related to Pune city’s transport, infrastructure, open spaces, policies, etc. will simply have to go to the website and access it for free.
WHAT IS OPEN DATA?
Open data can be defined as “the idea that some data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control”.
