GIS Open Data Portal for NBS

National Bureau of statistics is pleased to announce the new data portal on Geographic Information System (GIS) data that has been officially release today on August 18, 2017.  With collaboration from Esri Eastern Africa, ArcGIS Open Data portal was configured to capture all the spatial data sets that are good for the general public, decision makers and professionals. This portal allows all users to search for the required datasets, visualize them on the web and download in different formats such as CSV, Shapefile, kml and json.

Open data is the idea that some data should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control. Following the open government initiatives and data revolution efforts, this initiative will increase transparency and collaboration with all partners, government departments and the general public.
