Currently in Colombia, steps have been taken towards institutional transparency and one of the most important components for this purpose is the publication of data in open formats. These data can be analyzed by people through computer systems to obtain new knowledge. In this case, a proposal is presented in which, based on the rules of logical consistency, measures can be constructed that, when applied to open data sets, determine a minimum quality.
