I took a look at PDOK, the single Dutch listing.

The example page shows what is possible, when wanting to create graphs
for governmental viewing.
Documentation and issues are available, but mostly in Dutch only https:
Underneath are technologies like GeoNetwork http://geonetwork-opensourc
National datasets under various open licenses http://www.nationaalgeore

PDOK itself seems to be GPLv3, although this is not clearly stated.

Geonovum is working together with governement to organize the
geospatial data, and take good steps to forward open standards and free
software, from what I can tell from clicking around a bit.

So: worthwhile, although the applicability might be limited (wizard for
rendering certain view), and the development and documentation is
mainly Dutch only.

Kind regards,
