Providing access to Open Data in Hampshire

As part of our aim to improve trust and understanding among residents we publish a number of important sets of information as Open Data.

Open Data means making the non-personal information we hold freely available to everyone in a format that can be reused.

Anyone can use our data. You don't have to apply or ask for permission, but you do have to agree to the terms of the Open Government License for public sector information.

You are free to choose how you use the data: 

  • you may just want to examine the data to get a better understanding of local issues or of how we work
  • you could republish the data on your blog or website
  • if you are a software or web developer, you could use the data as part of a web application or mashup.

In exchange, we expect you to follow the Code of Conduct in the Central Government Datastore guidance on Open Data usage.

For more details see: Re-using our Information.

What data is available?

All of the Open Data and other information we publish can be found in our Publication Scheme.

Our data is also published on The DATA.GOV.UK website, where you will also find useful tools to sort and visualize our data, along with apps created using some of our data.
