Friday lunchtime lectures have returned to ODI Leeds. Streamed from ODI HQ in London, the lunchtime lectures offer unique insights in to the world of open data from innovative speakers working across the globe.
On Friday 18 November 2016, 1pm – 2pm, Dr Nick Bearman will explain how his team took the disparate Census geographies of enumeration districts and output areas and transformed them into a 1km grid across Great Britain. Nick discusses how and why they implemented the project with a range of open methodologies, open source languages and resources, and licensing our outputs with open data and source code licenses.
Bring your lunch and an open mind, and we’ll provide a bright and comfy space and plenty of tea/coffee
