Victoria opens access to government data

The state of Victoria hopes to drive innovation with policies that make public data available for reuse. Announced on 30 August, the DataVic Access and Intellectual Property policies will allow the public to download data sets produced by the government. The aim is to develop new technologies and boost job growth in the state.

However, there will be restrictions on access to certain types of data if privacy, public safety or security are an issue or because of pre-existing contractual arrangements, the state government said.
