This Data Expedition will begin with a workshop to:

  • brainstorm about what information helps us to gain insights into tourism
  • present suggested open data sets covering this type of information
  • learn to use data wrangling software from our Toolbox
  • collect, validate, clean and prepare data sets for the hackdays
  • publish the results online for others to use

We want to involve people with all kinds of skills at this event, whether you are familiar with the tourism industry, a data expert or just someone who would like to learn how to work with data. We will be working in groups and learn from experts and each other.
