What is Data HK?

Data hk is an open government platform offering access to Hong Kong’s public data in one central place, including over one million sets from international, European, national, regional and local portals.

This data is available in different forms such as line graphs, cross sectional plots, maps and more, making it suitable for use by researchers to gain new insights and address real-life problems in Hong Kong. Anyone with internet access and knowledge of reading xml format can gain access to it.
