The 5 stars of Open Data Portals

The 5 stars of Open Data Portals

The 5 stars of Open Data Portals are a way to tell policy makers and civil servants what technical people expect from an Open Data Portal. In too many cases we have policies setting up a portal without anything happening afterwards. From now on, you will be able to ask these policies: does your Open Data Portal reach the 5 stars?
