Abstract

This paper presents selected findings of the Belmont Forum's survey on open data which targeted the global environmental research and data infrastructure community. It highlights users' perceptions of the term "open data", expectations of infrastructure functionalities, and barriers and enablers for the sharing of data. Respondents also pointed out a wide range of good practice examples and a desire for enhancement and consolidation.
