Danish Government opens all basic maps, addresses and cadastral data in 2013

Say goodbye to expensive parallel registers in public. Hello to growth, innovation and jobs. This is the result, after KL (association of municipalities in Denmark) and the government have agreed to improve and connect the public records of basic data, and at the same time make all information available to private initiatives.

Basic data can be public addresses, corporate tax ID numbers or properties cadastral number. We are talking about data used again and again across the public sector, to collect property taxes, pay social security benefits or prevent flooding. Also companies can expect savings as they will no longer need to buy the basic data they need. The open data initiative provides new opportunities for innovation and growth, particularly for small businesses and entrepreneurs. They get the opportunity to try out new ideas without having to invest heavily in the data needed to create their product.
