The WA Open Data Policy is a whole of government initiative. Data.wa.gov.au is the vehicle to enable the Open Data Policy.
Data.wa.gov.au simplifies access to Western Australian Government data by enabling anyone to discover data in one place, and is backed by a data infrastructure that facilitates the easy publishing and dissemination of data. The platform serves citizens, business, and government alike by promoting the discoverability of data under the State’s Open Data Policy.
The policy calls for WA Government agencies to release high-value data, openly to the public, in machine-readable formats, and in ways that are easily discoverable and useable. There are a range of resources and guidance to assist agencies in implementing the policy on data.wa.gov.au - including an overview checklist and detailed guide for identifying and preparing data for release, a number of factsheets on key components of implementing open data, and links to further websites and resources.
The platform established for data.wa.gov.au is available for use by all WA Government agencies at no cost as a whole-of-government data infrastructure.
The Policy is available in full at https://data.wa.gov.au/open-data-policy
