Reference:
The World Open Data movement covers web-developers, internet activists, journalists, government institutions, different social and commercial projects, which share and support principles of transparent government. The movement stands for sharing data on Net in machine-readable formats (i.e csv) by government institutions and branches, for more comfortable search, processing, analysis and visualization of data.
