Abstract

The city of Montevideo was the first city in Latin America to set up an Open Data policy. This work analyses the emergence an evolution of Montevideo's open data policy as well as the early uses of data by civil society, private entrepreneurs and the state itself. The paper argues that policy objectives, resources, availability of data and technology play a role determining how open data ecosystems work. For open data policies to become an enabler of a more inclusive and open city different incentives and resources are needed.
