What? We Love Open Data

We <3 OD -team has a purpose: we want to find interesting data, clean it up, publish it and then visualize it.

Today, officials and private companies publish more and more of their data publicly on the internet. Budgets, timetables, costs, crimes, births, deaths – you can get it all .

We gather the data and clean it up so that computers can understand it. (For example: budget data into Excel .)

Then we clean the data and make some calculations. (How much does the army get if you compare it to health services?)

Then we visualize the data. Budget example is very simple, but things get more exiting when they get more complex. One question would be: can we make just one picture that clearly shows how budgets of all european countries have changed since the 1950’s?

We are present at the DMY Berlin festival from Thursday to Sunday. You can find us every day from 15 to 20 at WDC Helsinki booth .
