The new dati.gov.it portal is online
The organisation that manages the Italian Open Data Portal, the Agency for Digital Italy (AgID), recently released an update to the portal that greatly improves user experience and encourages the sharing of data between public administrations.
The update enables users to search based on keywords, making the search service much more effective. Several additional edits have been made to improve the design of the portal and to make open data more easily accessible. In addition, the new version of the portal also incorporates the catalogue of public administration databases. This now makes the portal the single access point for both the public administration databases and the open data catalogue in Italy.
The updated portal will play a significant role in Italy’s three-year plan in the context of the Directive on Open Data, which devotes special attention to the quality of metadata and the growth of the number of dynamic open datasets.
With this update, Italy’s open data catalogue continues to improve and aims to inspire government to publish, re-use, and share high-quality data.
