Dataportal.asia

To improve the cooperation and explore potential opportunities of data economy, Asia Open Data Partnership was initiated by 4 Asian countries (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand) in 2015. Today, AODP has 19 partners from 11 economies in Asia. Dataportal.asia was established in accordance with the resolution of AODP. By offering one-stop data access services, Dataportal.asia aims at facilitating and providing advanced features for cross-border open data access to ensure the exploration, exploitation, and re-usability of open data across Asian countries. Dataportal.asia harvests metadata from the publication of open datasets in national, regional, and local portals across Asian countries and Asian institutions, especially AODP members. The Portal also collect and publish use cases of using open data and activities related to open data across Asia. CKAN is adopted as the solution for Dataportal.asia.

This portal is developed by the Taipei Computer Association, Taiwan with the support of Asia Open Data Portal project.
