Brisbane City Council releases open data free of charge to encourage third parties to develop apps, websites and tools that can benefit Brisbane residents and business.
Currently 118 datasets are available in a variety of formats from Council's open data website, covering a wide range of information including public transport, waste and recycling, and spatial data.
The 2016-17 financial year saw a major increase in the number of people registering to use the service, with an average of one person signing up to access the datasets every day following a $190,000 investment in the initiative by Council.
The project has achieved some notable successes, providing the basis for Fountainhead Group's, Peter Kable, to develop the RightToGo app which uses open data from Council's Brisbane City Plan 2014 data to support homeowners and property developers who want to get property projects off the ground.
