Open data

Open data is information that is made accessible to all and often updated in real time, with the aim of being reused beyond its original purpose. For example: in many countries, the list of electric charging stations is considered open data. Anyone can download this detailed list and freely reuse the data contained therein. At the European level, most administrations share the public data they collect (statistics, demographics), after making it anonymous, in order to foster and sustain innovation and the emergence of the Smart city.
