Description

Implementing a strategy for open cultural data
1 March 2018 to 31 December 2019
Responsible body Ministry of Culture
Description
What problem for the general public
is the commitment aimed to solve?
Open cultural data will be able to contribute to
better services, richer experiences and greater
efficiency and value creation. The prerequisite here
is that the data exists, is readily available to both
humans and machines, and that it can easily be
reused and compiled with other data in new contexts. The most important contribution of cultural
institutions would be to contribute more data and
better data, i.e. more consistent and standardised
data, and to make the data openly available. In the
cultural area, intellectual property rights limit making
data with more recent cultural content publicly
available, such as digital photos, digital books, etc.
Privacy protection considerations also set limits for
making data publicly available, and this is particularly
relevant in the archival area.
What is the commitment? The cultural sector should have a culture of transparency and openness, in which data is generally
actively made publicly available. Priority data sets in
the cultural sector shall be identified, documented
and made available as open data. Standards and
authority registers shall be identified and implemented.
How will the commitment contribute
to solving the problem?
Prioritised cultural data will be made available for
use – both for developing services, providing richer
experiences and increasing efficiency and value
creation.
How is this commitment relevant to
the OGP’s fundamental values?
The value of open data and access to information.
