We are pleased to announce the new features of our Repository of Open
Government Data Catalogs . Until now, only the Open Data initiatives
led by either governments or public agencies have been published. Now,
any public sector information catalog (managed by citizen movements,
transparency commissions, NGOs, and other institutions) is welcomed. The
only requirement is that those catalogs must contain public sector
The second main feature is the collaborative aspect of the catalog.
Anyone may contribute submitting new catalogs using a simple form .
All the changes will be moderated to avoid spam or inaccuracies. After
the submission an the approval, the meta-information of the initiative
will be available through a SPARQL endpoint .
Comments and suggestions are welcome.
