Open Data Sheffield - Data Preview: Marine & Waterways Hack
With The Better With Data Society
Monday 11 January 2016
6pm - 8pm
Room 9002, Ground Floor, Cantor Building, 153 Arundel Street, S1 2NT
Ahead of the Marine and Waterways Hack (15-16 Jan), we take a look at some of the more interesting data available from academic research projects and various Defra and global environment agencies.
The upcoming hack puts marine and inland waterways into the spotlight, with a special attention to ecological, environmental and biodiversity data.
In the wake of the historic Paris Climate agreement and the seemingly ever-present torrential floods the UK is facing, we're opening the doors to scientists, artists, policy makers and researchers to experiment with a fascinating and broad suite of data that can help us discover the impact on life and living in and by water.
Join us at this preview evening to get a flavour of the datasets and challenges that could spark some great new apps, hacks, visualisations and research programmes. Register for the hack here.
Open Data Sheffield welcomes all who are or want to get involved in the city's growing data community.
Whatever your interest - big, small or open data, the transparency or innovation opportunities, the civic or cultural insights data can afford, or you're just curious to find out what the fuss is all about - you're very welcome to join us at Open Data Sheffield.
Open Data Sheffield is a community of citizens, data entrepreneurs, geeks, academics, journalists, local authority staff, third sector workers and public data providers with a passion for data and its infinite possibilities.
