Open Data Toolkit

The Open Data Toolkit, the result of a collaboration between Code for Aotearoa and Land Information New Zealand, is designed to help governments and open data enthusiasts understand the basic concepts of open data, how to plan and implement an open government data programme and some tricks on how to approach a dataset. It provides a comprehensive step-by-step approach to help government agencies release more open data in a simplified manner.
