Once a year the global open data community dedicates a day to spreading the love around open data in the form of International Open Data Day. It’s all about introducing people to what open data is, showing the value of it and how it can be used to make a difference on a daily basis and generally having fun and learning with data. This year is no different and once again we will be joining in the global celebration.
How well does your municipality manage its budget? How many months cash runway do they have in the bank? What is the ratio of unemployed youth compared to retired people living in your neighbourhood? What’s the most common level of education in your community? Unearth the most interesting story about your community and win a cash prize!
We are inviting people all over the country to spend a few hours getting to know their communities a bit better, using really simple tools powered by open data.
We have a fun quiz to complete using a combination of the following tools: (feel free to play around with them already)
Let us know you are accepting this challenge and we will ensure you are kept up to date with the latest information.
If you see an event in your area, why not join them on the day? We will update the list below as it grows:
