Understanding Data at Hands-On Workshop in London

On 10 December 2015 Pavel spent half a day at the offices of Future Cities Catapult learning about data and the different ways it can be visualised and interpreted. The event was aimed at SMEs who work with data or data-focused projects and featured a few hands-on sessions during which participants were asked to display some datasets on paper and using special software tools – CartoDB and Tableau. After the workshop Pavel attended one-to-one consultancy session with one of FCC’s in-house data scientists to learn more about the pros and cons of different GIS tools as well as to share his experience of OpenTransportNet, an EU-funded project that aims to make it easier to use and visualise transport data. The FCC event also presented many opportunities to talk about OTN to companies like Aether and Elecnor with which future cooperation including through knowledge transfer activities may be possible.
