And we’re off. Open Data Camp 3 (Bristol!) is underway. Probably about a third of the attendees are Open Data Camp veterans.

It’s pitching time. Let’s hunt for some themes:

  • Hardware hacking – getting data from devices

Education and access

  • Building data literacy through stories
  • Making open data easier
  • Undercover open data – taking the covers off

Government data

  • Land Registry data – who are – and could – people use it more?
  • Citizen participation in open data
  • Local government data – from a policy perspective

Earth and beyond

  • Turning LIDAR into insights
  • Open data from space. Satellites and other Earth observation
  • How to map everything – and what not to map
  • The best spot for a pint using Lidar and HTMLCanvas
  • Using open data to improve highways

Developing data

  • Connecting linked data
  • Opening up business data
  • Innovation and open data
  • Open data fusion – linking data sets to make something more interested
  • Little data – more data as part of natural processes
  • Co-create data and licences
