Open data

Our main challenge was related to data availability: closed formats datasets, asset disclosure forms in diverse formats (handwritten, PDF, scan and photographs), lack of beneficial ownership data, operability of links, delivery of information from public agencies and denial of public access to certain data. However, we overcame these obstacles by manually uploading the information to set up our database and run our cross-checks.

Data availability and open sources formats are essential to enforce the human right of access to public information.
