datosabiertos.ec is a platform that was created in 2013 in order to gather and encourage public access to various data created in initiatives such as Developing Latin America Ecuador, hackathons and data expeditions. In 2016, this site was relaunched as part of the Civic Laboratory project of the FUNDAPI Foundation. At the time it included 39 data sets, containing budgets, economic data and compensation information, among others. The platform required a free registration, and once completed allowed the users to add data and make notes about other contributions.
