IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS


Municipal Council of Venice “Open Data”

The same information, supplied to the above-mentioned Internet service developers, presented in a shared standard format (GTFS, general Transit Feed Specification) is now published in the “Open Data” section of the “Municipal Council of Venice” website. This is a new perspective, which thanks to Internet, has positively influenced many countries, and satisfies a new inalienable right to information.
And, because of “Open Data Venezia” group insistence, and policy recommendation 175/2012, the municipal administration introduced Open Data procedures and uses licenses permitting the re-use of information for commercial purposes.
Aware of this, in 2013, the Venice Municipal Council started a project whereby the Administration's digital code (Leg. Decree N. 82, 17th March 2005) was activated and lead to the dati.venezia.it portal. The AVM group also contributed by supplying local public transport timetables and opened its database to the public.
This allowed its inclusion in the best apps on transport and in the official VeneziaUnica app – the interactive city tourist guide, developed in partnership with Arte.it. It created new prerequisites for any developers wanting to implement new services.  “Open Data”.
