Surrey Open Data
Surrey’s Open Data Program is one component of our commitment to be an open, transparent and accessible government.
What is Open Data
Open Data is the idea that certain data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions. The goal of open data is to:
Help small businesses
Enable socio-economic development (health care, education, economic productivity, and scientific research), which is accelerated by better access to data
Create value in some other positive unforeseen way
Surrey's open data is made freely available under the Open Government License. Find out about personal information protection, license details and how to suggest a dataset from our Frequently Asked Questions.
Depending on your interests, you can design practical solutions for the City's specific challenges by developing applications, or doing research. To incorporate open data into your mobile app, mashup, or web map, take a look at our Developer Resources page.
