  • Formats for open data, machine readable and human readable

    Open data should be provided in a format that makes it easy for others to re-use. This often means it should be in a machine readable format. The New Zealand Government Open Access and Licensing framework (NZGOAL), the all-of-government guidance for agencies to follow when releasing material for re-use, provides the best format options for the different types of data you might release.
