Open API recommendations for cities

These recommendations are intended as a general policy to be applied alongside the strategic policies, principles and guidelines that often guide ICT and service development in cities. From a technological and service-oriented standpoint, the significance of APis is, mostly due to accelerating digitalisation, increasing at such a pace that a need has emerged for a document that describes the importance of APIs and the goals related to them from the perspective of the cities.

This document presents the consolidated view of the Six largest cities in Finland on how to develop open APIs through inter-city cooperation. The Six cities are Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Tampere, Turku and Oulu.
