During yesterday’s Fusion Curriculum meeting there was a brief discussion about sources of open data.
There are an increasing number of open data sets offering an almost unlimited scope for data analysis and data mash-up. Data is downloadable in common formats and in some cases it is possible to create visualisations on the fly from the host website.
Here are three sites that you might like to explore:
|Country||URL||Datasets Jan 16|
|UK Government Open Data||https://data.gov.uk/data/search||26,122|
|EU Open Data Portal||https://open-data.europa.eu/en/data/||7,894|
There are many more data sets available to BU both under subscription and as open access. To discuss in more detail please contact your LLS Faculty Liaison Team.
