A quick note to announce (and celebrate!) the launch of a new community driven French open data catalogue, NosDonnees.fr last Friday in Paris.
- The catalogue is a joint initiative between the Open Knowledge Foundation and Regards Citoyens. Efforts are currently underway to populate the catalogue with information about French public datasets, including legal information about how they can be reused.
The catalogue is powered by CKAN, which also powers data.gov.uk and over 20 other catalogues in various countries around the world! If you’d like to set up a catalogue in your country, please get in touch on the ckan-discuss list!
