Note: We first posted about India’s data portal when it launched in beta 11 months ago.
India has officially inaugurated Data Portal India, a portal for the public to access and use datasets and applications provided by ministries and departments of the Government of India.
The Portal functions as a single access point for open government datasets across the country. Currently, there are about 3500 datasets from 49 government departments available for the public to access and use. The datasets include agriculture, commerce and industry, defence, finance, health, information and broadcasting, energy, transport and water resources, among others.
The Portal also has six apps, all created by government departments. One of these shows national level information on rural sanitation coverage in India. Another provides physical, biological and geological information on oceans and coasts. Currently, the Web Map Service app is rated the highest.
