At a global level, data and information, especially that held by public administrations, must be available to all citizens, as stipulated in the Spanish Transparency Law (Ley de Transparencia de acceso a la Información Pública y Buen Gobierno 19/2013).
At Teralco Group we create innovative technological solutions to promote the accessibility and transparency of organizations. Our data experts work to discover the data universe of public and private companies transforming them with intelligent technology.
To facilitate transparency and access to public information, we have developed the Open Data portal. This platform aims to publish public information in an open and reusable way, so that both citizens and companies have access to it for consultation.
Alicante City Council is part of the Spanish Smart Cities Network (RECI) who’s objective is to exchange and design Smart City projects with other State Councils and with different social entities; leding to the launch of Alicante’s Open Government Panel last week.
Alicante City Council has trusted our solution, and has incorporated our Open Data portal in their Open Government platform. This allows the organisation to make a series of data and public information easily accessible to the public and for their use, collaborating in the new culture of recycling of information.
This portal will facilitate the City Council’s commitment to strengthening its transparency, with the publication of public information on: the Municipal Council, citizen participation, economic-financial information, hiring and costs of public services, agreements and subsidies, as well as information on matters of urbanism, public works and the environment.
How does Open Data benefit citizens?
The Open Data portal provides greater transparency to the Public Administration, generating more trust in the institutions, and improving the quality of information.
With access to the Open Data portal, citizens can search and navigate easily to find different types of data. The interface is intuitive and easy to use, allowing users to be self-sufficient.
The information is classified and grouped offering the option to filter data, download it in different formats, or preview it ss a chart, a graph and even as a “Map” if there are fields in the datasets that correspond to longitude and latitude.
Free and Complete Electronic Administration platform
In addition to our Open Data portal; 17 years of experience in the digital transformation of Public Administrations, has allowed Teralco Group to develop and perfect the Electronic Administration product, Gexflow, in which the Open Data portal is currently integrated.
