Comparison & Benchmarking

The OpenDataMonitor supports a comparison and benchmarking tool. You choose the countries you want to compare and benchmark their overall results or select individual catalogues. Furthermore, you can specify certain time periods if you want to restrict your comparison to datasets provided within a specific time frame.

Comparing the similarly large catalogues of the three Spanish autonomous communities of Aragón, Catalonia and the Basque country illustrates that Catalonia is strong in machine-readability, the Basque country achieves a high result in metadata completeness. Aragón has the largest number of datasets and distributions and is strong in open licenses.
