Open Ownership is unveiling a set of data analysis tools to help anyone wanting to reuse and work with data published in line with the Beneficial Ownership Data Standard (BODS).
Harnessing a range of open source tools and libraries, our tools allow analysts, data journalists and anyone interested in learning more about beneficial ownership to investigate and use data from the Open Ownership Register and Latvia by converting it into a variety of formats.
The Open Ownership Register is our transnational beneficial ownership register. It regularly imports data from the beneficial ownership registers of Denmark, Slovakia and the UK and connects data across jurisdictions by structuring the data in line with v0.1 of BODS before offering it for anyone to download under the Open Data Commons Attribution License.
The latest data from the Register can be found and analysed at https://bods-data.openownership.org/source/register.
Open Ownership advocates that beneficial ownership data should be available in a structured format to allow it to be more easily analysed and linked with other datasets.
To share feedback about these tools, please raise issues on Github or connect with the data standard support team at Open Ownership via email at [email protected].
