National Statistics

Data is generally accessible via portal of Statistical Office and linked via Slovak National Data Portal. Thanks to Data Portal, we know the licensing for the data: CC-BY-SA.

Not all data is consistently available this way but at least those few mentioned in Census are available:

Data from Address Registry is published by NASES (organization running data.gov.sk) based on agreement with Ministry of Interior (responsible for Address Registry).

Data is available under CC-BY license and is split into multiple dataset, copying "upstream" data model: from list of regions at the top, though counties, cities and streets to the list of actual address points. All the data required for Census is available, although some of it requires combining together several datasets and then running a query. Additional hurdle is that coordinates are not in GPS but in S-JTSK (Slovak norm).

The data is available since 2009. It is updated daily and is quite detailed. In the past it was not available in structured machine-readable format but since 2016 daily dumps in XML format are being published and documented on data.gov.sk .

Regarding licensing: Licensing is assumed to be CC-BY (based on https://data.gov.sk/organization/656F92FC-F8ED-4DA5-A9F5-1499E03AD575?license_id=cc-by) but some datasets from same set lack licensing information (error in publishing automation is assumed).

Status is same as in 2015. Hopefully, new portal (providing API in open format, explicit license for data and various other improvements) will be launched next year.

Company Register

This is a new portal for new registry, which unites several other registries used in the past.

The bad news is, that it is available only in in human readable form, i.e. via Search Form (search possible based on ID number, name of the subject, etc.) and results are available as HTML.

The good news is that data is licensed under CC-BY (as stated on the front page of portal) so other non-government project(s) are scrapping the data and are making it available in machine readable form (for example https://ekosystem.slovensko.digital/otvorene-data#rpo).

National Maps

Maps are available via interactive portal without means to export data for the general public (other than printing in PDF). Maps are available in resolutions up to 1:2000 .

There is a copyright notice at the bottom of the page, apart from that, no other license is available specifically for the data - so "No" is indicated as an answer in this regard.

The data, though, should be available for download, even in bulk, machine/readable formats, for a fee. We couldn't test this functionality, therefore we couldn't specify the formats of the data other than HTML and JSON (as available though portal, discover-able with some reverse engineering).

To the best of our knowledge, the data for the whole of Slovakia is updated approximately once in 3 years. The map seems to be up-to-date at the moment, but no information about last updates is provided.

Draft Legislation

Data bout drafts of bills is generally available via two portals: Slov-Lex (run by Ministry of Justice) and Portal of National Parliament (run by National Parliament). While Slov-Lex covers almost whole life-cycle of the drafts, it lacks information about voting in parliament, which needs to be looked up in portal of National Parliament (along with transcriptions from debates).

Both information sources lack machine-readable bulk access option and data licensing information.

Air Quality

Data is generally available (including benzene, thus also VOCs are assumed to be covered) and updated hourly. Data is available per monitoring station although not all station provide data for all categories.

Regarding licensing: Copyright statement at the bottom oft he portal roughly matches CC-BY-NC which does not meet Open Definition (disclaimer: IANAL).

Land Ownership

In general, Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre Authority provides data through several portals, each time with more or less different subset of data and functionality and each time quite explicitly not in machine-readable form and only "for personal (small scale) use".

In particular, data on property value is not publicly available, citing data protection needs.

Weather Forecast

Basic forecasts for Slovak regions is available in textual form for next two days. More detailed forecasts are available through so-called ALADIN model for many Slovak cities either for next 3 or next 10 days with data required by Census available (except average temperature) in the form of an image with several graphs.

Note: 3-day forecast provides temperature extremes, 10-day forecast does not.

Government Spending

There is summary information about spending on monthly basis available at http://www.rozpocet.sk/ and http://www.finance.gov.sk/ (see for example http://www.rozpocet.sk/app/homepage/rozpocetVCislach/monitoringStatnehoRozpoctu/mesacnePlnenie/2016/ and also for example http://www.finance.gov.sk/Default.aspx?CatID=10601) but those do not match the definition used by Census (above all, individual transactions are missing).

The data is updated daily which indicates it does exist somewhere in digital form of data.

Election Results

Elections and Referendum results are all available through the website, but not all data is available. Presidential elections do not show invalid or spoiled ballots results, although it is possible to calculate invalid votes. Latest Parliamentary elections (2016) also available and dowloadable in XLXS & ODS format. Results are available for electoral and territorial districts and municipalities. While licensing is not stated on the official portal, all datasets are registered on National Data portal (data.gov.sk) where license (CC-BA-SA) is stated. (http://opendefinition.org/licenses/cc-by-sa/).

The Department of Hydrology doesn't look at water quality but the Public Health Authority does. Changed the Ministry other points are correct.
