Bavaria launches a new data portal: discover ‘open bydata’

Explore the new data portal launched by the Bavarian State Ministry for Digital Affairs

The Bavarian State Ministry for Digital Affairs recently launched a new version of their open data portal, now branded as ‘open bydata’. Following the first publication of the Bavarian Open Data portal in May 2023, this new platform offers over 1,100 datasets from state authorities, municipalities, and research institutions.

The Bavarian open data team developed the open bydata portal to create transparency and enable businesses, academia, and civil society to use data for innovation and further improvements to their services. By involving future users from the beginning of the development process, the team created a portal that supports synergies between administrations and the public.

The new portal includes a variety of updates, such as a new design with improved usability, new search functions, extensive information and consulting services for administration, and several interfaces for software development and data analysis. Furthermore, data providers can establish their presence on the portal by individualising their profile with information such as contact details. This enables users to contact the data provider with ideas and projects related to their datasets.

In the future, the portal will be constantly updated with more datasets. Check it out on and learn more about the challenges and future of the portal in our upcoming data story including an interview with the Bavarian team!
