Hong Kong Open Data Index
In May 2020, the Internet Society Hong Kong (ISOC HK) launched the Hong Kong Open Data Index (HKODI) 2019/20, the first comprehensive review of open data from the city's civil society. The civil society has pushed ahead with open data in Hong Kong since 2013, in the forms of such as civic tech introduced from overseas. However, the government did not respond actively. Hong Kong was ranked 24th in the last round of Global Open Data Index in 2017, when Taiwan was ranked 1st.
ISOC HK has identified the need to develop an assessment tool to measure data openness of the city in order to locate the data gap and engage other stakeholders, in particular the government, to improve the policies and practices. Taking reference to 19 sets of international open data standards including one published by Taiwan's Open Culture Foundation in 2017, the HKODI has been launched. The report of HKODI found that various key datasets ranging from land, housing to business registration are not freely available in the public domain, whereas each government departments adopts different standards than others.
