The National Data and Analytics Platform (NDAP) was launched by the Vice-Chairman of NITI Aayog in the presence of the CEO of NITI Aayog. The public launch of NDAP follows a beta release of the platform in August 2021.
The platform NDAP hosts foundational datasets from various government agencies which aim to democratize access to public government data by making data accessible, interoperable, interactive, and available on a user-friendly platform.
It follows a use-case-based approach to ensure that the datasets hosted on the platform are tailored to the needs of data users from government, academia, journalism, civil society, and the private sector.
NDAP hosts 203 datasets and these datasets are chosen based on use-cases and expert advice, interoperable with each other, and easy to download and use.
This platform will help in the country’s development by promoting data-driven disclosure, and decision making, and ensuring the availability of data connecting to the last mile.
The platform has features like in-built tools to search, merge, and visualize datasets. In the future, the platform will be updated on existing data and add data to the platform.
