Event description

Description

You are invited to take part in our next mini DataDive! This DataDive will last one day and involve one project. We would be thrilled to have you with us to spend the day digging into data.

This DataDive is in partnership with the Shared Assets and the Ecological Land Co-operative. Shared Assets are a think and do tank that support people and projects managing land for the common good. Ecological Land Co-operative are one such project, dedicated to establishing affordable sites for small holders who run sustainable rural businesses.

We will be working with these two non-profits to explore how best to find suitable plots of land for their work. We will mainly be working with open data, with a strong likelihood that there will be web-scraping involved.

If you care about the environment and sustainable land use and want to use your data skills for good then come along! If you are a wizz at creating maps and working with geographical data we want you there!

We are trying to keep the event small and focused so are limiting the number of participants to 20 on an invite-only basis.

Remember, you need to bring your own hardware and software, your data skills, and the belief that you can help change the world for the better.
