From now on, REUSERS, the new section of the Open Data BCN Portal, is available. It has 2 subsections. DEVELOPERS aims to ease the processing of data for specialists, while VISUALIZATIONS AND APPS intend to show use cases of the data in the Portal that users may want to share with the community. We encourage all users to fill this site of content.
The section PORTAL FEATURES has also been actualized, according to the new features that the portal has acquired.
In February 2011, Barcelona was one of the first city councils that had his own open data web. Today we inaugurate this new portal with the intention that it becomes an important piece of the strategy of data publication of the city, and, especially, that it help to generate social value for the citizenship, as well as for the companies interested to generate more and better services and applications.
I encourage you to discover and use it. It is a living space to experience, innovate and create.
