Sakstat / Geostat makes numerous national indicators available on their website for free.
Geostat has adopted the PC-Axis platform and all its public data is available via Axis and can be downloaded in public in a number of machine-readable formats.
Sakstat / Geostat provides foundational statistics for free, such as population, GDP, unemployment, etc. However, the agency collects more detailed statistics which are not freely available. The freely-available statistics are sufficiently detailed that I believe the dataset qualifies as freely available even though not all statistics collected by the agency are available for free.
All government-generated data in Georgia is legally in the public domain.
The National Agency of Public Registry maintains the land ownership data. It is not available for analysis, but for personal use cases, and so bulk data download and use are not envisioned or encouraged - much like the NAPR's company data registry.
While the data is available online, it is not available in bulk in a machine readable format. The only way to access the data in this way is by scraping it. TI Georgia and JumpStart Georgia have both unsuccessfully requested bulk format and API access.
Most of the data is made available in PDF files, although some Excel files are available; therefore, the data is overall not machine-readable.
All government-generated data is legally public domain in Georgia, although the Ministry of Finance website specifies that it is Copyright 2015 the Ministry of Finance. No specific license for the dataset is provided, however.
The legislation of Georgia is made available online by the Legislative Herald of Georgia, a "Legal Entity of Public Law" which is subordinate to the Ministry of Justice.
Laws and other legal documents are available via a search interface. The format of the documents is HTML; there is also a PDF download link. Neither of these qualifies as machine-readable because they would need to be scraped in order to extract the text of laws.
An offline version of the data is available for download, but only for paying users; therefore, this does not qualify as making the information available in bulk. Likewise, this downloadable version could potentially be disassembled to extract machine-readable versions of the documents, but this also doesn't qualify as machine-readable.
All government-generated information in Georgia is legally in the public domain, but the Legislative Herald Website specifies "All Rights Reserved" which could lead uneducated users to believe that the information was copyrighted. Thus, I marked this dataset as not openly licensed.
The data is updated regularly and frequently; the site is a valuable resource used by practicing lawyers in Georgia in the course of their work.
all air pollution is monitor Apart from VOCs
Information about the 2014 Municipal Elections (which were centrally administered) is available at http://results2014.cec.gov.ge/ with a nice interface and precinct level results as both HTML tables and scanned PDFs of the original documents. Results for past elections are displayed under the Archive section of the website (http://www.cesko.ge/en/arqivi-6), data for the historically important 2012 Parliamentary Elections is available at http://results2012.cec.gov.ge/.
In addition, precinct level data is incomplete and not available upon request. Only district level data is. This makes it difficult to conduct many kinds of analyses on the data.
Finally, administrative boundaries change regularly and the CEC does not make geographic shape files available to the public that officially delineate the boundaries of precincts from one year to the next.
All government-generated data in Georgia is legally in the public domain, although no particular license is provided with the online data.
Data is available for free; no charge is required for any site functions.
A search interface to access the full data is available at the link given. It is possible to browse the whole database by submitting a blank search, and clicking to reveal more detailed company information (after submitting a CAPTCHA). However, address information does not seem to be included.
The data is not machine-readable because most important data, including data on company ownership and directors, is in PDFs and/or DjVu format.
The data is not available in bulk. Transparency International Georgia (an NGO) runs a web scraper which republishes the information in a machine-readable format with an API at http://www.companyinfo.ge/en/ . However, this information is not timely, and the Public Registry recently installed a CAPTCHA which prevents the web scraper from functioning.
All government-generated information in Georgia is legally in the public domain. However, there is no licensing information included with this data set.
The data set pulls directly from the central database of company registrations and is therefore always up to date.
Only current data is available, and not in machine-readable format. Information going back a year is available for purchase only.
The Ministry of Finance makes monthly revenue and spending reports available als XLS files, but these do not list individual items or transactions but list only aggregate expenditures for personell or purchased goods and services (http://mof.ge/en/4646). It's not clear if more detailed information is centrally collected and aggregated on a monthly basis.
On a side note: All government agencies use a centralized e-procurement system to purchase goods and services. Data on non-classified government contracts and bills/receipts is available at https://tenders.procurement.gov.ge. The data includes transactions from state bank accounts to suppliers for the implementation of contracts, but no bulk data is available.
A detailed, zoomable map is made available by the National Agency of Public Registry (http://maps.napr.gov.ge/) which operates under the Ministry of Justice and maintains the cadasters. The map appears to be timely. Users can mainly only display data on cadasters, topographic data and information on administrative boundaries, etc. is not available online.
The Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Protection of Georgia makes available linked PDF (and many others) at http://moe.gov.ge/index.php?lang_id=GEO&sec_id=56&info_id=0&mod_id=0&new_year=0&limit=0&date=&new_month=&entrant=1. There are no maps with the required scale though.
However, these maps themselves are low-resolution PDFs renderings of the actual map data; it is therefore possible that the online datasets do not meet the scale requirements, since the resolution of the map which is available online may be less than 1:250,000.
This also means that the maps are not available in machine-readable format, since no Shapefile or similar file type is available.
High resolution maps of Georgia exist as can be confirmed on the website the private company Geoland Ltd. The company offers the service http://www.mygeorgia.ge/ where users can obtain different high-level maps and also download the current screen or create a link related to the current view.
All data generated by the Georgian Government is legally in the public domain.
Unfortunately, information on water quality and pollutants in water is only available by the companies contracted to manage the water. JumpStart requested water quality data in the past and the company Georgia Water & Power made us jump through a lot of hoops to get the most meager of data in PDF format.
There is a database of postal codes available online, but it only provides street information, without geospatial coordinates. http://www.gpost.ge/?site-lang=ka&site-path=help/zipcodes/&letter=%E1%83%99
The National Agency of Public registry is the maintainer of postal codes, but does not make this information public for free.
