Information about the project
MX Open Data Infrastructure
Much as airports, highways, or power plants, Open Data in Mexico is thought of as a strategic infrastructure which is needed to enable policies focused at promoting development, growth and wellbeing in the country. Thus, it is necessary to identify a list of the most strategic, high value data generated by government, to help citizens and governments in the construction of public value. The Open Data Infrastructure (IDMX) is a list comprised of the most valuable datasets from diverse government sectors and related to priority objectives for Mexico. Today, the IDMX is embedded in the Open Data Policy Implementation Guide, and contains more than 600 datasets about anti corruption, human rights, economic development, climate change and public services. This infrastructure was built based on a citizen consultation through the technological tool In this consultation, more than two thousand participants from civil society, private sector and citizens participated to prioritize and propose the data they considered necessary to understand public issues and take actions towards its solutions. The infrastructure is available in and the number of datasets will increase based on the implementation of the Open Data Policy in Mexico and the need of the mexican context.
