The Guidelines for Data Providers were designed to help your organization publish data assets.

The guidelines provide recommendations on how to facilitate access to and reuse of data assets. Open data sharing gives access to a wealth of interoperable data and information from diverse sources. This allows spatial integration and analysis that help gain knowledge and answer complex societal questions.

These guidelines also provide a list of questions to ask when contracting the creation of a report and associated data, while ensuring that the new data is standardised and accessible for future reuse.
