Draft Legislation

The bills are all public as their status, authors and possible edit. The votes per party and individually per MP as well as the debates are published a few days after the sitting.

The votes are in Excel format and indicate the decision that has been voted in order throughout the day. Some of the decisions are procedural. Others affect if and how a bill will be voted. Others still affect individual parts, statements or even words of the bill. The transcripts have indications of these proceedings.

Content of bills are available in PDF and some in HTML.

The parcel ID and border data is openly available, free of charge and easy to use. The ownership however is protected as personal information by law. Therefore registration and fees apply.

National Laws

Re-submitted by Reviewer after rejecting original submission. Original Submission included data for Legislation rather than National Laws.

Although the database for legislation contained some bills (http://parliament.bg/bg/bills), it comprises National Assembly #39 through #43 -- its earliest date of catalog is 2009. Not considered a National Law database.

The initial submission presented what seems to be the official INSPIRE for Cadastre Information in Bulgaria, available at http://geonames.cadastre.bg/index.php#, where only queries are provided. After asking in the forum, I received the endpoint http://inspire.cadastre.bg:6080/arcgis/rest/services/inspire/iServices/MapServer. The data (not available for download, not openly licensed) stored is not compliant with this data theme.

Air Quality

Air quality data is available on a daily basis, but only for air pollution concentration exceeding the recommended daily threshold values. THis data is available as open data here ( http://opendata.government.bg/organization/izpalnitelana-agentziya-po-okolna-sreda) as well as public data here (http://eea.government.bg/airq/bulletin-en.jsp).

The data does not conform with the required characteristics, that air quality data must be readily available per air monitoring station (also pollution levels below thresholds), or at least for the biggest cities.

Data did not have all the parameters; Arsenic, Fluoride, and Total Dissolved Solids was not available, this is why the answer to B2 was changed to No.

Weather Forecast

The submission did not qualify for assessment, because no forecasts are available for wind speed and direction.

The data is available at: http://weather.bg/0index.php?koiFail=RM2bulg1&lng=1. The data is stored as a PNG file embedded in the HTML code. Single elements (precipitation icons, etc.) cannot be individually scraped. Extensive human effort would be required to transcribe the data manually.

The data can only be used for private use: "© NIMH. All rights reserved. For personal use only! Any usage of data from Bulgarian Weather Server in public information services or for commercial purposes without explicit agreement IS PROHIBITED!"

The original submission was done by Drenusha Myha. Thank you for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
