In recent years there has been a tremendous move towards Open Data, especially the making of government data readily available in online applications, as reports and documents, and especially as consumable data for research and “mash-ups”. Geospatial Data has been one of the most popular categories of data provided by all levels of government and by non-governmental organizations.

Join us this Thursday November 28th for a Thought Exchange event on this topic with Raphael Sussman from Land Information Ontario in the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

This session will review some of the geographic data, data products, and data-based applications provided by Ontario Government ministries and how the process of information management at the government is becoming much more interactive: the logical corollary to Open Data being Crowdsourcing.
