Datasets

The goal of the Open Data Hub project is to make available datasets containing data about the South Tyrolean ecosystem, to allow third parties to develop novel applications on top of them, consuming the exposed data. These applications may range from a simple processing of datasets to extract statistical data and to display the result in different graphic formats like pie-charts, to far more complex applications that combine data from different datasets and correlate them in some useful way.

Note

This page was last updated on Nov 15, 2019 and all information about the availability of datasets is correct as of this date. This page will be updated in due time as soon as more material will be made available.

As seen in Figure 1, data originate from different domains (Mobility, Tourism, and so on); they are gathered from sensors and packed together by Data Providers. Sensors can be for example GPS devices installed on buses that send their real-time geographic position or a small electronic device on a plug of an e-charging station that checks the if the plug is being used or not, to let people know that the charging outlet is available.

Datasets are accessible through a REST API, the URL of each endpoint is given along with other information in the description of each dataset, see the lists of datasets in the remainder of this section.

Data Providers

A Data Provider is any entity that shares their Open Data with the Open Data Hub project, allowing their free reuse (ideally under a free licence like CC0 license (public domain) or CC BY-SA license) from any third-party that relies on the Open Data Hub to build their application. These entities can be private companies or enterprises, public bodies, and even private citizen, if they have interesting data about South Tyrol to share.

The Open Data exposed by the Open Data Hub originate from data and datasets owned by different actors (called Data Providers) which are at this time mostly local public bodies. Since there is no direct 1-to-1 correspondence between Data Providers and datasets, we currently offer a list of data providers whose data can be pulled from Open Data Hub. Indeed, an Open Data Hub dataset can be composed of data deriving from different providers, while a provider can submit to Open Data Hub multiple types of data that will belong to more than one dataset.

The Open Data Hub’s Data Providers are:

  • IDM Südtirol/Alto Adige.

  • SIAG, Südtirol Informatica AG - Informatica Alto Adige.

  • SASA, public transport operator.

  • Alperia/Neogy, energy provider for South Tyrol.

  • Municipality of Bolzano.

  • Municipality of Merano.

  • Municipality of Trento

  • Municipality of Rovereto

  • APPA, Trentino Agency of the environment

  • CISMA, Bluetooth sensors

  • Carsharing Alto Adige, via its technological partner DB Rent

  • LTS, South Tyrol Association of Tourism Organisations.

  • APPA, South Tyrolean agency for the environment.

  • InnoVie.

  • Südtirol Wein.

  • Route220, Nevicam and Driwe e-charging stations provider

A note about datasets.

The Open Data Hub contains many datasets: a few have been provided for testing purposes, other are meant for internal use only, and other contain only a part of their data that is available as Open Data.

While the goal of the Open Data Hub project is to expose only Open Data and the Open Data Hub team members always suggest to use CC0 license (public domain) to third-parties releasing datasets, it is not yet possible for the Open Data Hub team to guarantee the availability as open data of all the data in the datasets, because the data licensing and its distribution rights are decided by the copyright holder of each dataset.

Since some of the datasets may contain data that can not be distributed by the Open Data Hub team under an open licence like, e.g., CC0 license (public domain) or CC BY-SA license, a user will be able to retrieve from each dataset only those data that are distributed as Open Data.

At the date of writing, datasets about the Mobility and Tourism domains are available; the available datasets in each domain are listed below.
