Abstract [sv]

Sverige har länge haft en god kultur av öppenhet i den offentliga sektorn tack vareoffentlighetsprincipen. Men med allt större tekniska framsteg och ökade krav på datatillgängligheträcker den klassiska öppenheten inte längre till. Det finns redan mycket intressant offentlig data iSverige, men i de flesta fall är den antingen sparad i format som är svåra att avläsa digitalt eller fördyr att använda.I denna uppsats undersöks hur ett API kan utvecklas, användas och integreras med andra API:er föratt öppna upp ovan nämnda data på ett bättre sätt och göra den mer tillgänglig för potentiellaanvändare. Vidare undersöks också PSI-direktivets egentliga nytta och hur det tillsammans medoffentlighetsprincipen kan bidra till den nya öppenheten. Med koppling till denna uppsats har ävenen prototyp utvecklats för att ge exempel på hur man kan kombinera olika API:er för att visualiserageografisk data samt hur ett API kan byggas ovanpå visualiseringen för att göra denna data mertillgänglig.

Abstract [en]

Sweden has long had a good tradition of openness in the public sector, thanks to the principle ofpublic access. But due to increasing technological advances and demands on data availability theclassic transparency is no longer sufficient. There are already very interesting public data sets inSweden, but in most cases they are either stored in formats that are difficult to read digitally or it'stoo expensive to use.This thesis examines how an API can be developed, used and integrated with other API:s to open upthe above mentioned data in a better way and make it more accessible to potential users.Furthermore, the real benefits of the PSI directive are examined, and how they along with theprinciple of public access can contribute to the new openness. In connection to this thesis aprototype has also been developed to provide examples of how to combine different API:s for thevisualization of geographic data, and how an API can be built on top of the visualization to makethis data more available.
