The Dutch government provides a lot of data about the Netherlands through different online platforms. The Central Bureau of Statistics has data on every municipality, neighborhood and sub-neighborhood, the Cadastre about all houses and parcels, the municipalities about the design of the (urban/rural) landscape, and that is just the start. How to find the needle you need in the haystack of open Dutch geodata? In this course you will get an overview of the different platforms that present open data and you will get a few insights into the possibilities of a few interesting datasets. You will also have the chance to quickly work hands-on with open geodata under supervision of the experts of the Geodienst.
For a short overview of the available data, also check out our Bring Your Own Lunchseminar on 22 October 12:00-13:00.
Basic knowledge of any GIS software (e.g. QGIS; ArcMap) can come in handy, but is not necessary.
