The Scottish Government is making our rich public sector data open for social and economic good. In statistics.gov.scot, we have an open data portal that can be used for free, by anyone and without restriction. It contains a wealth of information that describes our country and how it is changing.

For data experts, this includes API access as standard, to our 5* linked open data. This data infrastructure is used by Official Statistics producers from public bodies across Scotland to disseminate the information that they create. We have committed, in the Open Government Action Plan, to increase the amount of public sector data published as open data, and to make this information easier to find, understand and reuse.

Outline for the talk:

• What the site is
• What's in there
• What the opportunities are for analysts to use it
• Example applications
