Data is the new iron ore – the raw material of mobile- and web-based applications which bring communities new innovation and social benefit. It is estimated that by 2016, the Australian digital economy will be worth $70 billion. http://bit.ly/140EekR
The State Library is providing a range of data sets which can be freely used and subject only to the requirement to attribute and share alike.
We believe that citizen owned government data should be made available for re use by anyone as the best thing to do with that data is likely to be thought of by someone else.
The State Library has data released on on data.sa.gov.au or on our Flickr page [www.flickr.com/photos/state_library_south_australia/albums].
