Publish agency data (Data Portal)

What is the Data Portal?

The Data Portal is, a site for publishing Queensland Government data under an open licence. (See case studies showing how open data has benefited Queensland communities.)

Data can be aggregated into sets, for example, 'Active mobile speed camera sites.'

Users can filter data by:

  • publishing organisation
  • category, for example, 'maps and geospatial'
  • tags, for example, 'finance' or 'science.'

Employees who have determined that their data belongs on the portal need to request publishing access, and follow publishing standards to ensure that data has appropriate metadata.
