Rapidly developing of internet technologies and digitalization of government generate more and more data. Databases from various public institutions and private sectors, e.g. in the fields of economics, transport, environment and public safety are publishing in the global Internet network, so that any user can browse them without additional charges. Most of this data is published on the open data portals. Open data - that is, “open”, public data can allow the processing and analysis of information contained in them completely free of charge. This article is an introduction to a fairly new area of issues such as “open data” or “open government”, presents the main mechanisms of accessing to data in public open data portals and also propose a conceptual open data/government model.
