The association’s work and successes in digitizing the rules and regulations for the use of the landscape with the aim of making this information freely available as Open Data has convinced the DBU. They will support the work of the association for 24 months with a substantial grant.
In an initial pilot phase, we have already been able to digitize the rules for around 400,000 hectares of protected areas in 23 model regions and demonstrate the feasibility of our proposed solution.
The support of the DBU enabeld us to put our work on a broad basis. With the help of additional employees, we will record the rules for the use of nature for the majority of protected areas in Germany and make them available as Open Data.
