CLASS 9:OPEN DATA

Class description:

We aim to make increasing amounts of our data freely and widely available via these web pages. West Lothian Council has adopted the UK government's approach to Open Data Standards in that data should be published to a minimum of 3 stars in the Government's 5 star rating scheme

This means our data is easily accessible and available to re-use as required under the Open Government Licence.  We are working hard to ensure all our published datasets meet this standard.

Throughout the councils website all text documents are presented and downloadable in pdf/odf format and spreadsheets are in .csv format.
