Data Round Table - Open(ing) geospatial data

When:We 01-02-2023 13:30 - 17:00
Where:Smitsborg, Nettelbosje 1, Donald Smitszaal

On the 1st of February 2023 the Geodienst and the Digital Competence Centre invite researchers to come to the CIT (Donald Smitszaal - ground floor) to exchange experiences, ideas and best practices on the collection, management, protection, publication and reuse of geospatial data in a multi-disciplinary data round table. The two themes that are covered this day are 'Spatial research design & Geotechnology' and 'Geodata of the peope, for the people!'

The programme consists of lightning talks of researchers covering different topics and cases that highlight either potential or challenges in open(ing) geospatial data.
