CKAN, the world’s leading open-source data portal platform
CKAN is a powerful data management system that makes data accessible – by providing tools to streamline publishing, sharing, finding and using data. CKAN is aimed at data publishers (national and regional governments, companies and organizations) wanting to make their data open and available. But it is also very extensible, so you can build your own things on top of it, expanding the possibilites to match your own vision or need what to do with it.
CKAN has been used by governments
and user groups worldwide
Used to power both official and community data portals, CKAN was developed by the non-profit Open Knowledge Foundation to run the Datahub.io. It now powers more than 40 data hubs around the world, including portals for local, national and international government, such as the UK’s data.gov.uk and the European Union’s publicdata.eu.
