Open Data Day is an international annual event where data enthusiasts gather to connect and build new solutions to complex social issues by using open data. The event takes place globally and includes talks, seminars, hackathons, demonstrations, trainings or the announcement of open data releases or other milestones in open data.
This year, Open Data Day 2019 is supported by Hivos, Mapbox, Frictionless Data for Reproducible Research and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom and will have four tracks:
- Follow public money flows with a focus on Open Contracting.
- Open mapping, where participants will learn about the power of maps to develop better communities.
- Open Science, focusing on topics from open research data to open access and how they contribute to making science more relatable and significant for people.
- Equal Development, where participants discuss anything from the Sustainable Development Goals to using data at a local level.
