The subject area is pretty much the public sector information,
anything and everything that you may find from data.gov.uk for
example. The common denominator for all the data sets listed in this
kind of public sector data catalog is very small. Page 12 in "PSI
Asset Registers: towards a pan-European PSI registry" [1] may give you
an example.
