A couple weeks ago, the W3C Spain Office, and CTIC organized an event 
called "W3C Day in the Public Administration" [1]. A number of 
representatives of different governments in Spain were gathered together 
in order to talk and present the latest news on Open Government Data in 

Some interesting open data projects were presented:

* opendata.euskadi.net [2] (in Spanish), Basque Government Public Open 
Data. They have large datasets ZIPped in 'traditional' formats (XML, 
CSV), but also have some of them published in RDF files.

* risp.asturias.es [3] (in Spanish), Principality of Asturias Public 
Open Data. An approach focused on Linking Government Data, where the 
datasets are in a triple-store, can be queried using a SPARQL endpoint, 
and are visualized in HTML. Also, there are examples of visualizations.

* datos.zaragoza.es [4] (in Spanish), Saragossa City Council Public Open 
Data; a list with some public data in different formats (XML-SOAP, HTML, 
RDF, GeoRSS). Also, they have installed a platform for citizens building 
mashups to use these data [5].

If you are more interested in more details, please let me know, or read 
the report of the event [6].
