Weltbank – Open Data

The World Bank has published a vast archive of their data and had this data processed in a clear way.

Back in 2010 the World Bank President Robert Zoellick declared the organization a knowledge institution, emphasising the importance of free access to data and knowledge. To this end, the World Bank has published a vast archive of their data and had this data processed in a clear way. Filters allow users to search by country, topic or indicators. The material gives political development activists a better understanding of the effects of particular development programmes and projects. It also enables the work of organisations to be evaluated and improved, since data forms the basis on which we can measure efficiency. An specific example is the World Bank initiative Mapping for Results.
