    • POST-PROJECT Now What
    • What we learned •  There are a lot of data that are freely available – and even more that isn’t. •  There are a lot of open-source tools that can be leveraged to do complex/weird tasks. •  What might data mining look like at an institutional or governmental level?
    • How you can build off our work •  (Ab)use the available tools •  Ask questions relevant to your own community or social-physical landscape •  Think spatially – how are things related in space and time. •  Find ways of collecting your own data
    • QUESTION AND ANSWERS
