We are celebrating: the new Open Data BCN portal reaches its first year.

Open Data BCN is a key piece in the Barcelona Digital City strategy and it is integrated within the new Data Analytics Office, created recently, which has the goal to improve and coordinate the ethical and responsible management of the data inside the Barcelona City Hall starting from three lines of work: data gathering and storage, analytics, machine learning and predictions and finally, data sharing and communication. Barcelona wants to make data a common good, a city infrastructure controlled by citizens and open to local entrepreneurs.

We add a new functionality to the portal: the search of datasets by geolocalization. This allows the users to filter the datasets that contain geolocalizated data and, therefore can be represented on a map. The functionality also distinguishes between the data that the portal can preview, in this case on the OpenStreetMap base.
