  • Different drivers of “open” combining together.

  • Software developers have a hard time knowing where to find quality open data geographic resources. A lot of use of “well-known” base layers and platforms e.g. Google, Bing, ESRI, ArcGIS.
  • similar to standard science outreach activities
  • Open Scientific Data

    13. 13. Citing: Problem 13
    14. 14. Citing • Unique identifier • DataCite • DataCite Canada • DOI • e.g. DOI: 10.5194/essd-3-1-2011 (paper) DOI: 10.1594/PANGAEA.737668 (data) DOI: 10.5443/1643 (data) 14
    15. 15. 15
    16. 16. Connecting: Software Developers • machine-readable files ideally with well-supported software libraries for parsing the format(s) • well-documented API • open license • support & use platforms that provide the above • hackathons to bring domain experts together with software developers 16
