One of the key issues in developing an open data portal is detecting, selecting, classifying and prioritizing the data of the organization to be opened. It is not a trivial task since organizations (as universities) are rather complex (in terms of staff and existing information systems) and furthermore, data from universities has a rather heterogeneous nature. This paper introduces the “data map” concept as a means to support carrying out this process. A data map aims to help in improving the process of opening data, reaching a high level of automation by considering the required metadata and semantics.
