Municipal Data Office

Description / Objectives

The City Council launches an office for the unified management of public data.

Thanks to all of the technological infrastructure and sensors spread across the city, we generate, collected, receive, catalogue, process or share lots of data that has high intrinsic value.

Data becomes an infrastructure of interest to the public; a shared resource for the common good. Data is the key to the city and can be used to take decisions more quickly and democratically, to promote innovation, to achieve improvements to public services and to empower people.

Based on this premise, the City Council thought it was a priority to open the Oficina Municipal de Dades (OMD - Municipal Data Office), which is now responsible for the management, quality, governance and use of data controlled and/or stored by Barcelona City Council and all of its associated bodies (both public and private).

The current volume of information generated by citizens and the City Council itself through its activities, combined with the existing technology and the science of data, allows us to make a leap forward and become more efficient at capturing, storing and analysing data, as well as drawing conclusions that help with decision-making for new public measures.
