Welcome to the Greater Birmingham Data Factory. This is the place where organisations in the Greater Birmingham Local Enterprise Partnership area can publish their open data.

This site is administered by Digital Birmingham on behalf of Birmingham City Council. Open Data is as much part of the economic agenda as it is of being transparent about an organisations business.

We believe that Open Data can generate many benefits such as:

  • Giving you direct access to data to build your own opinion
  • Allows datasets to be combined to create new insights
  • Enables sharing of data
  • Allows application developers to use real data

In principle, all our Open Data will be published with the Open Government 2.0 Licences so it is free of charge to reuse by anybody. Where data is derived from a licence and therefore its reuse is limited, this will be explicitly stated.
