Format: Excel; CSV
It is unclear who produces this data; one would imagine the Moroccan post is the producer (http://www.codepostal.ma/code_postal.aspx).
The country's Open Data portal contains two datasets: the postal codes of districts (http://www.data.gov.ma/data/fr/dataset/codes-postaux-des-quartiers) and of cities (http://www.data.gov.ma/data/fr/dataset/codes-postaux-des-localites).
Update rules are unknown, thus it is unclear how up-to-date the data on data.gov.ma is. Bulk download is not available as each file needs to be downloaded individually.
Lastly, as other indicators before, the licensing is a tricky question to address: the datasets themselves are said to be under the ODbL yet the website itself carries the mention "Copyright" by the eGov unit and the 'License' page is broken. Thus, the data is considered non-open.
Data is partially available: train, tramway and plane schedules are posted on the official website of the respective websites (http://www.tram-way.ma/fr/ ; http://www.casatramway.ma/ ; http://www.onda.ma/ ; http://www.oncf.ma/Pages/Accueil.aspx ; http://www.ctm.ma/). Data is not provided at all. The visitor can only send queries through a web interface. Each website (thus, institution) has its own copyright on each website.
Regarding whether information is provided on a timely and up-to-date basis: One would imagine so as these are frequently used services. Yet no indication is available to inform on when the last update was done.
The High Commissioner for Planning (HCP) of the Kingdom of Morocco is responsible for the statistics. More precisely, the Statistics Directorate (Direction de la statistique http://www.hcp.ma/Direction-de-la-statistiquea716.html ) at the HCP.
The data is diverse but generally outdated and provided mostly as PDFs or Word documents although Excel sheets also exist. The Moroccan Open Data portal data.gov.ma also hosts several datasets from the HCP (http://www.data.gov.ma/data/fr/organization/haut-commissariat-au-plan). The data here is as Excel sheets yet is mostly outdated and not available for bulk download.
The question about licensing is tricky to answer: when it boils down to the HCP, the data and content it provides are property of the institution. The Open Data portal has an unclear status: each dataset here is individually licensed under the ODbL yet the website itself and all its content are copyrighted by the eGov unit (data.gov.ma has no indication whatsoever on its 'License' page: http://www.data.gov.ma/fr/licence). Thus, the copyright mention has priority and the data is considered non-open.
The General Secretariat of the Govt has several texts of existing/promulgated laws (The Constitution, Financial and Budget laws, Labour law, Family law, etc.) and many more of draft bills ("Projets de textes diffusés aux membres du gouvernement", http://www.sgg.gov.ma/Projetsdetextesl%C3%A9gislatifsetr%C3%A9glementaires.aspx ).
I was not able to identify such documentation on the Ministry of Justice website (www.justice.gov.ma ), yet the ADALA (http://adala.justice.gov.ma/AR/home.aspx) database seems to be the focal point where legislation content is published.
The legislative documents do not seem published on a timely basis: many of the recently adopted laws are not featured on any of these websites. This is for ex. the case for the widely discussed "rape law" (the Penal Code provision which used to allow the aggressor to marry the victim in order to avoid jail sentence) which was amended in January 2014 (http://www.lefigaro.fr/flash-actu/2014/01/22/97001-20140122FILWWW00619-maroc-loi-sur-le-viol-amendee.php).
Data is not really shared : at directinfo.ma (the e-service side of OMPIC), there is a form to fill (web-based query) where to enter the search criteria. Only very limited information on each company is given; for any further detail, the visitor needs to pay. The pricing policy is available here: http://www.directinfo.ma/directinfo/DownloadDocPDFServlet?type_doc=tarif (PDF, in French).
The available data is not as precise as requested by the indicator. Although available in a machine-readable format, the data is not available for bulk download (each file needs to be downloaded individually).
The Ministry of Economy and Finances also releases data on the Open Data portal (http://www.data.gov.ma/data/fr/organization/b428a1d6-2c1b-409a-a7e6-46272f2cf4c9?tags=budget ). Copyright by the institution although each dataset on data.gov.ma may display individual license (ODbL). The licensing terms being confusing and the general website's terms being priority, data is thus considered non-open.
*Reviewer's note: Data is aggregated and does not contains monthly transactional data.
The agencies responsible for the data are: Ministry of Public Service and Administration Modernization (http://www.mmsp.gov.ma/fr/index.aspx); Ministry of Interior (no website); and the National Agency for Land Registry and Mapping (http://www.ancfcc.gov.ma/FR/).
Map data is not available online at all. On Morocco's Open Data portal, very few details are available, e.g. postal codes and post offices geolocation (http://www.data.gov.ma/data/fr/group/cartographie) yet this is not what this indicator is about.
It is thus unknown how the data is handled, whether it is up-to-date, whether it is available in digital formats at all, etc.
The Ministry of Interior is responsible for this information and for the collection of this data. It has no website (yet ?). Also, the Ministry of Interior is not a producer of Data at the Open Data portal (www.data.gov.ma). The Ministry of Interior thus collects data but does not share it, neither on the data.gov. ma nor elsewhere.
No data exists online at all. The conditions according to which the data may be released are unknown. It is unknown how the data is handled. Thus, questions about pricing policy and timeliness have been marked 'Unsure' to reflect this reality.
The agencies responsible for this data are The High Commissioner for Water, Forests and Desertification Control and the Ministry of Environment. No data exists at all. The rare details in reports are all non machine-readable (PDFs or static webpage with a chart as JPG or PNG). They do not appear to be up-to-date. Lastly, the reports are not openly licensed (instead, they are property of the institutions that publish them).
