ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Martin O'Malley has launched an initiative releasing a wide variety of state data to the public online.

O'Malley announced the initiative at a panel discussion on Wednesday that included the Future of Information Alliance, a partnership between the University of Maryland, College Park and 10 other partners.

The O'Malley administration is describing it as the first statewide open data portal that will provide information to researchers, entrepreneurs, public servants and residents.

The information will include things like vendor payments, vehicle accidents, licensed veterinary clinics, geographic information systems mapping data and per capita electricity consumption. Most popular Maryland baby names in 2011 also are available.

The data will be available in one central place for the public online at data.maryland.gov.

The website will be continually updated.
