Bahrain Open Data Portal
The open data portal of the Government of Bahrain provides easy access to official public data sourced from all Government entities by the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA). The data is made available through several formats, including raw data and graphic representations, while the portal offers search facilities and browsing by topic. The portal offers data analysis options, dashboards and the possibility to download the data for re-use.
To aid in the reuse of data the open data portal offers the API. The API makes more than 300 indicators and query data accessible in several ways, based on user-specified parameters. Bahrain open data has been used to develop some applications, and these are listed under the Developer Zone on the portal.
