Welcome to IMM Open Data Portal!

The IMM Open Data Portal has been created by Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality as a first step towards freeing Istanbul’s data. IMM will carry out the necessary work to access the data that its subsidiaries, affiliate companies, other public and private sector organizations have and can share in accordance with the provisions of the Law on the Protection of Personal Data (KVKK) and the law and to use this data for free.

The City of Istanbul is committed to transparency and accountability. Whether you are an inquiring citizen or a software developer, IMM Open Data Portal is an invaluable resource for anyone to easily access data published by IMM. IMM Open Data Portal acts as a bridge between you and the City. Instead of going through a formal process to request information, you are able to instantly review, compare, visualize, analyze and share your data discoveries.

IMM Open Data Portal will make the wealth of public data generated by various IMM Departments, IMM’s affiliate companies, and other City organizations available for public use. As part of an initiative to improve the accessibility, transparency, and accountability of IMM, this catalog aims to offer access to a repository of government-produced, machine-readable data sets. Data is presented by category, or by organization. Descriptions of the data, the collection method, and other contextual material, called metadata, make the data sets easier to understand and use. Use of these data sets and how they are generated can be better understood by reading the Terms of Use.

Anyone can use these data sets to participate in and improve government by conducting research and analysis or creating applications, thereby gaining a better understanding of the services provided by IMM and improving the lives of citizens and the way in which government serves them.

We hope that IMM Open Data Portal proves to be a valuable resource for those seeking to improve governance, public services and the quality of life in Istanbul. We will struggle to present data in a meaningful way and desire that you visualise or build apps from the data available on the site which will have added-value to Istanbulites.

If you are Interested in how your city is performing and want to effectively collaborate with policymakers and service providers, we invite you to explore the continually growing datasets to help make Istanbul a more accessible, transparent and collaborative community!
