New South Wales shows our public sector how it should be done

ITWire reports:

The NSW Government has begun a long process of cataloguing all the data sets it collects and has now committed to making the free public availability of each set its default position in handling public information.

The Department of Premier and Cabinet has created a website at data.nsw.gov.au to list all government data sets, outlining which sets are freely available and a timetable for those that are not yet available…

And the roadmap, which overhauls how data is collected, stored and made available, is being conducted in conjunction with a $100,000 competition called ‘Apps4NSW’ aimed at encouraging the public to come up with ideas for new applications using government data, or prototypes for new applications.
