In terms of the digital form criteria, even if the data is not publicly available, we can say “yes” when it’s in a digital form inside the government (e.g. in the relational database system). Does this also apply to other criterias such as machine-readability?
In some cases, the data is publicly available, but not open-licensed, and it’s available only in HTML (i.e. found on the Web only), but not in a machine-readable format, even though we know the data is in a digital form and machine-readable inside the government. In these cases, can we still say “yes” to the machine-readability criteria?
In the case of Government Spending of Korea, where the dataset is in a digital form but only high-level parts are publicly available, I said “yes” to the machine-readable criteria since the available parts are machine-readable and it seems that there is a feature for government officials to export data in Excel.
Before I go further, I need clarification on this. Any thoughts, @Mor?
