Data is USELESS!

Lars Agerskov Christensen

What is the value of data? This presentation will be about value of data and why data is useless unless it is collected and used in a right way or with the knowledge on how it is collected and therefore what its limitations are.
We will look at official data and Open Street Map and show some examples that visualize the mismatch between dataset. We will also show how data can be used, when it is updated correct and how we can go beyond just the nice Open Street Map as just a basemap. Then we will investigate what we can do about it and how Open Source tools play a huge role in this. It will open a discussion and hopefully a brainstorm on the way forward.
