In this section:
- Requirements before data sharing and release
- Releasing open data to the community
- Sharing data with other government agencies
If your agency is ready to share or release data, the Department of Customer Service has established two environments for agencies to share and release data.
Before sharing and releasing data, you must:
- understand the data sharing principles
- complete the data sharing checklist
- assess whether you need to make data safe for sharing and release
- consider if you need a data sharing license or agreement.
After you have assessed the requirements above, you can make open data for the community available via the NSW Open Data Portal.
There is a guide available to help create the right metadata and upload or connect your data so that it displays and is available via the NSW Open Data Portal.
After you have assessed the requirements above, you can start to share data with other agencies via the NSW Data Portal.
NSW Spatial Services has developed this portal to establish a baseline of data sharing functionality for NSW government.
This environment is currently being tested by pilot agencies.
To share data via this portal you need to:
- create a profile to be established as a data owner with sharing permissions on the portal
- upload data and metadata to the NSW Data Portal
- create groups of trusted users who you wish to invite to share your data.
