Toronto Reference Library Hinton Learning Theatre

Open data is data that anyone can access, use and share. It is used by a wide range of people, from journalists and software developers, to mappers and civil society, to government and citizens. It is a powerful tool to learn about our communities, tell stories and find opportunities to improve how we live, work and play.

Join us as Bianca Wylie and Andi Argast from the Open Data Institute Toronto provide an accessible and interactive introduction to the concept of open data as a type of information by exploring what the city and the library is doing with open data, look at some of the challenges of becoming a more open city and explore the opportunities and benefits of doing so.
