What is Basic Data?
“...various core information about individuals, businesses, real properties, buildings, addresses, and more.”
"Good Basic Data for Everyone – A Driver for Growth and Efficiency",
The Danish Government / Local Government Denmark, Oct 2012
It is Financing
“...map data, cadastral maps, Central Business Register data, and company data will be financed by the government and released to the public and the private sectors...”
It is Quality Enhancement
- Expansion of data in some datasets/registers
- Phasing out redundant registers
It is Linkability
It is Distribution
It is Coordination
“...to ensure efficient, effective and coordinated development and use of basic data, a cross-institutional basic-data committee is to be established...”
All Basic Data*
“...As a general rule, all basic data is to be made freely available to all public authorities, private businesses and individuals.”
- Data in the Central Business Register is free
- ...but not the (otherwise public) fiscal information.
...though they were already free, and being distributed.
