Don't Fear The Data, Embrace The Future' - What Makes 'OPEN Glasgow' A Success and How Can This Support the 'Future St Helier' Initiative

Open data is data that can be freely used, and redistributed by anyone and allows organisations and individuals to produce data driven decisions.

We have organised a visit from Cyril Dyer who was instrumental in the success of Glasgow’s’ Open Data project which we will utilise to support the ‘Future St Helier’ initiative. Cyril will be in Jersey to give presentation regards the value of Open Data and to further your understanding of the technical or interpretative challenges.
