ODI Fridays: Five lessons from a decade working with open data

ODI Fridays: Five lessons from a decade working with open data

ODI Fridays lunchtime lecture, 13 December 2013.

In a decade of running data-heavy civic tech sites such as FixMyStreet, TheyWorkForYou and Mapumental, mySociety has learned a lot about how to gather, display, and archive data - and we have the yarns to prove it.

mySociety's senior consultant, Mike Thompson, talked through, amongst other things, why one of their sites breaks on an almost daily basis, how they combined open data sources and a routing algorithm to evaluate the accessibility of Welsh secondary schools and the guerilla data collection methods some councils have used to derive their bin collection calendar.
