Free of charge is not free of cost

Using is free of charge. However, maintaining the service infrastructure of course costs money. These costs are completely covered by the nine provinces of Austria. Why? should be used to maximum benefit. Extensive experience with geo data marketing showed, that this can only be achieved when services are free of charge and barrier-free. The Austrian provinces therefore agreed on using the Austrian Open Government Data License (CC-BY 4.0) by the Cooperation OGD Austria.

Thus is a clear contribution of the public administration towards an open, barrier- and discrimination-free access to administrative data. Beneficiaries are not only the administrations themselves, but also economy, science and eventually all citizens.
