We are working across governments to publish more data, collaborate where possible, and continue to improve functionality with user feedback. We encourage you to use government data to analyse, mashup and develop tools and applications which benefit all Australians. We also maintain a list of Australian Government mobile applications/websites.
You can also now register your data use cases by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with how you’ve used government data in your applications (mobile, web, etc), data visualisations, reports, news articles and anything else publicly available. Please just send us the following information: Title; Description; URL; Image URL; and Type: [API|Applications|Idea|News Article|Paper|Post|Visualisation]. We will automate this process as soon as practical.
Contact the data.gov.au team to let us know how you are using government data, or if you want to contribute to the Australian Government CTO blog about open data and data.gov.au.
