Open data - natural resources, mines and energy
We support the Queensland Government's open data initiative by making our raw data as freely accessible as possible on the open data portal.
Our open data strategy lists our datasets and explains our data assessment process. The strategies prepared by our previous departments are available below.
- Department of Natural Resources and Mines - open data strategy
- Department of Energy and Water Supply - open data strategy (PDF, 805.1KB)
There are more than 500 data resources on the open data portal, covering the range of our activities and responsibilities. Data are updated at varying frequencies, including fortnightly (e.g. titles activity), monthly (e.g. coal statistics) and annually (e.g. corporate reporting).
