Its aim is to facilitate access to public information and the re-use (re-use) of public sector information for all concerned. The portal can be used by any internet user, without restrictions. The data published in the portal comes from different urban units. The Whiteaster Open Data portal serves as a repository of public data, enabling storage, interactive access and re-use through the API of the aforementioned data. Extensive functionality and implemented implementations testify to the maturity of the solution.
Machine learning is also in our field of activity.
Open Data Portal Software allows you to preview files in a convenient form – tables, bar graphs, line graphs, as well as maps and pdf files.
Data is presented in various ways – in the form of tables, maps, charts and images. The message is simple and clear;
Automatic conversion and processing of data entered in the form of graphs, tables, graphics, etc.
This function allows you to find information in a dataset, in a specific file or even in compressed resources.
The documents are grouped into categories and the user can already access them from the homepage. Moreover, each set of data has its own category and tags in the tag cloud.
Categorisation of data sets – transport, education, sport and recreation, demography, spatial data, events, social or environmental issues
Possibility to share data via API – to be used as a data source for other systems
Individually tailored design of the portal
The administrator is able to manage user requests thanks to a customized inbox. Each request has an individual status, which helps the administrator to control the requests.
Flexible definition of responsibilities and rights – to update and publish the data, allowing you to be part of the organisation of the Office’s work;
Publication of additional information (CMS) – for example news, news, etc.
Possibility to share data in social media channels
Fast data sharing that doesn’t require any additional skills and time from administrative staff.
An efficient search engine that allows you to search for results not only within individual categories, but also in the files themselves – this solution enables quick and accurate access to the data you are interested in.
Data is presented in many ways – as tables, maps, charts and images. The message is simple and transparent for users.
The first beneficiary is society. The inhabitants of cities and municipalities themselves, not only gain full access to data without application or additional charges, but also receive knowledge, for example, about weather conditions or air pollution, possible difficulties in road transport, what the citizen’s budget is like, what the city’s zoning plan looks like, where to find points where free legal aid is provided, and whether there is a disease epidemic and others in the city.
The city becomes transparent to them, and they become more involved in social issues.
The second group is made up of Local Government Units themselves. Open data portals are an internal database for the municipalities themselves and contribute to facilitating communication between the individual departments of the municipality or organisational units they work with. The data update themselves, which means that there is no need to keep separate registers and to enter data each time they want to use them. This, in turn, is reflected in the greater efficiency and comfort of officials. In addition, open data results in fewer requests for public data.
The third and last group includes entrepreneurs, companies which, thanks to open data, their analyses and re-use, can potentially decide to build a business in a given city. It is also an excellent environment for innovation (start-ups or hackathons).
