Open data
Practice notes

This Practice Note deals with open data and broadly describes what open data is. It examines the importance and history of open data, the UK regime for re-use of public sector information (PSI), how open data is accessed technically, legal issues with open data, Creative Commons and other standard open data licences, issues for licensees, and what’s on the horizon.
