Le Groupe La Poste launches its Open Data Portal

Data currently available on the portal includes a full list of post offices, details of services available within them, a calendar of different opening times, and the official postal codes database. Datasets can be downloaded in CSV, JSON and Excel formats, with an API access also offered.

Back in 2014, the association representing OpenStreetMap France criticised Le Groupe La Poste for pretending to be an Open Data champion. Following this, in 2015 La Poste collaborated with the National Address Database in an open and collaborative effort to reference all addresses in the French territory.

More details (in French) about the newly launched portal can be found in this official press release.
