Open Data Euskadi is the portal to the Basque country's government data.


In 2009, the Basque government opened up its data via the portal Open Data Euskadi, licensing all of its public data under CC Attribution. The Basque government listed as its reasoning for opening data, to "generate value and wealth," "create transparency," and "facilitate interoperability between administrations." The government especially encourages reuse of its data by the private sector, other public administrations, and stakeholders to promote transparency in government.
