An open data portal for Queensland
The state government of Queensland recently launched an open data portal, Queensland Government Data, which gives the public free access to 73 datasets, under categories such as government, public safety, education, transportation and health.
‘Public safety’, for example, contains datasets on crime statistics from the police department, requests for help to State Emergency Service, and current bushfire incidents (which is updated every 30 minutes) from Queensland Fire and Rescue.
