Open Data Portal (Open Data BCN)

Description / Objectives

To release data of public interest so citizens can make use of it.

Since the Catalan Law on Transparency, Access to Public Information and Good Governance was passed towards the end of 2014, citizens have had the right to know and request public information. Barcelona City Council has a repository of open data, the Open Data BCN portal, that now includes more than 450 data sets on the population, health, economy and education, among many others, which can be found in formats that can be reused and downloaded.

The fact that citizens have access to open data is a form of empowerment. Anyone can actively find out more about any piece of data in order to decide what personal or professional decisions they want to make and how to go about it.
