National Statistics

The initial submission stated that data is openly available at the Statbel data portal. License can be found at http://statbel.fgov.be/en/statistics/opendata/licence/.

However this only refers to population data which is published as open data.

Data on Gross Domestic Product is provided by the National Bank of Belgium (NBB). This data is openly licensed (see: https://www.nbb.be/doc/dq/e_pdf_dq/escb_policy_en.pdf). An automated retrieval of larger sets of data is not allowed (hence no bulk access).

"In order to give NBB.Stat users optimal access to the data, the National Bank has developed an IT infrastructure that is able to meet normal and everyday information requirements of users. However, the application is not intended for systematic and large-scale consultation or downloading of the databases. Should the National Bank find that optimal access may be jeopardised, it reserves the right to impose restrictions. Anyone wishing to consult or download data systematically or on a large scale should first contact the National Bank."

Water Quality

Belgium is decentralized there is no central Ministry that is collecting and using water quality data for monitoring. They have a GIS portal for environmental mapping of sediments and some pollutants being used by businesses however not all the parameters are present. This is why B2 was changed to No.

Land Ownership

There is relevant data available as a view/discovery service - CadGIS Viewer Public. However, it is not fully compliant with the requirements of this theme. There is no accessible information related to land property and even if the basic info (ID, area, type) can be downloaded as CSV, the SHP / GML export with more details requires payment.
