    Abstract

    Many countries and also cities have their own open data portal, which provide geographic data that can be used even by citizens. One of the current challenges is to satisfy user needs to ensure that the data that is provided through the portal is
    actually used. This paper provides insights in the findability of datasets through of a special kind of portal: the geoportal. It presents the main findings of research accomplished on the findability, attainability and usability of geoportals through an
    assessment of the transaction costs involved.
