Open data strategies

The Queensland Government is committed to building a trusted data ecosystem that makes important and non-sensitive data open for anyone to access, use and share.

The Queensland Government Open Data Policy Statement (PDF, 491 KB) (DOCX, 840 KB) was drafted with input from businesses, academia, industry associations and the community. It provides a direction for open data to meet the needs of all Queenslanders.
