New Government Website Launched – Data.gov.uk

Data.gov.uk is a new UK Government website offering free access to a large amount of public sector data for private or commercial reuse. The website was officially launched today – Thursday 21st January 2010.

The aim of the website is to encourage UK web developers and companies to create websites and information feeds that combine the data with other information such as time, maps or other datasets – and potentially to discover hidden patterns that may not be obvious from the raw information.

The link to the website can be found here:
