Open Data Nepal is now live!


Hi Everyone,

On the occasion of the International Open Data Day 2018, Open Knowledge Nepal had launched Open Data Nepal.

The Open Data Nepal aims to make Nepal’s data accessible online perpetually in a central hub. The data available in the portal is harvested and crowdsourced from different public agencies and international organizations who work under the government of Nepal. One of the main features includes converting these data into a machine-readable format like CSV, JSON, TSV etc along with metadata and meta description. The portal can be used by researchers, journalists, private agencies, students, developers and Nepali citizens to meet their data needs. The harvested data will be shared online which can be used, reused and redistributed by anyone from any corner of the world to build innovative products, without any technical restriction. It invites users to download, upload and browse required data using different filtering mechanisms like search by categories, meta tags, formats etc. The user can also generate visualizations of every dataset for a better understanding of data by providing suitable parameters.

We are looking for some suggesting, feedback and collaboration opportunities. More info:
