How it works

1 Publish your data

Good news! You've already done this bit (or you're about to). Now let's make your data easier for people to find, use and share.

2 Check it with our questionnaire

Our helpful questions act like a checklist. They explain your options about how to publish good open data and give you clear and recognised targets to aim for.

3 Share it with a certificate

Your answers determine which of our four certificates you generate. Each one means success in a unique way and demonstrates you are a leader in open data.

What does a certificate look like?

It's a badge that links to a description of your open data. The description explores things like how often it's updated, what format it's in, who and where it came from.
