What is data.gov.sg?
data.gov.sg is the first-stop portal to search and access publicly-available data published by the Singapore Government. Launched in June 2011, data.gov.sg brings together over 8600 datasets from 60 government ministries and agencies.
The aims of the portal are to :
- Provide convenient access to publicly-available data published by the government
- Create value by catalysing application development
- Facilitate analysis and research
Besides government data and metadata, data.gov.sg also offers a listing of applications developed using government data, as well as a resource page for developers.
data.gov.sg was initiated by the Ministry of Finance along with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore . Key partners for this initiative are the Singapore Land Authority and the Singapore Department of Statistics.
