Get Started

There is a wealth of data that is created for and about us and the communities in which we live. Although much of this data is available publically as open data it is often hard to locate, with the tools and understanding needed to interpret and use it unduly difficult.

In this intensive, I’ll try to demystify the world of data, highlight what data is and isn’t available, what it can be used for and give you some easy tools methods that can help – without needing to know anything about coding or programming and all without opening a single spreadsheet.
