What is Open Data and how we might define it, you can find out more at Open Definition and Guide to Open Data Licensing made by Open Knowledge Foundation.

A great way to search for Open Data sources is: http://datacatalogs.org/dataset (doesn’t have all the sources, some of the ones I mentioned below are missing).

http://openrefine.org/ – tool for working with messy data, cleaning it up, transforming it from one format into another

Another way to search for open public data is http://www.google.com/publicdata/directory .

A great open source data portal software is: http://ckan.aorg/ . (used in many open data portals)
