An introduction to open data

Download to read offline

Talk given at Fronteers 2015 in Amsterdam.

In a world where many of our digital spaces are becoming more closed than ever, open data is a concept that is rapidly on the rise.

In this talk we'll explore what open data is (and what it isn't), and why we should care about it. We'll look at how you can introduce it into your projects with regards to practical publication and consumption, and discuss some useful tools and reference points.

Open data isn't just dry and technical - it gives us great scope to be creative, and throughout this talk we'll go through some of the amazing things that it has been used for globally in the hope that it will inspire you to create something amazing yourself.

  43. “How accessible is your nearest school, post office, or GP’s surgery? ! In Wales, that’s not always a simple question: the country’s mountainous landscapes, rural populations, and sometimes infrequent bus services can mean that those without cars are rather cut off from public service provision.” mapumental.com/services/accessibility
  44. “Just how quickly could fire engines reach a given postcode in case of a fire? ! It’s a question that’s pivotal to decisions made by both the emergency services and the insurance industry.” mysociety.org/2013/04/22/fire-fire-mapumental-and-fire-engine-journey-times
