Open data and interfaces
Six cities and data made available
Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Tampere, Turku and Oulu made their public data available in the Open data and interfaces (6Aika) project that ended on 31 December 2017. The aim was to create common models for making data available, make interfaces available and to facilitate the use of open data in business. This work was done in different cities at the same time and in the same way. As a result, cooperation between cities and businesses increased significantly. After the priority project was completed, data availability continued as part of the core business of cities.
- Open data and interfaces (6Aika) spread awareness of open data, increased competence around it as well as cooperation between cities and between cities and businesses and schools.
- During this key project, a major change took place in cities.
