  • 6. Rethinking metrics
  • 7. A new model for Data Metrics The dimensions on which we can work on this model can be š Spatial (do neighbours have a dataset?) š Topic-driven (do we talk about the same stuff?) š Time-bound (do we have a history about that data?)
  • 8. A new model for Data Metrics - Space Cool! Very Uncool L
  • 9. A new model for Data Metrics - Time Time series (EuroStat, ISTAT, National Statistics agencies) J Anyone else? L Municipalities have lots of historical data!
  • 10. A new model for Data Metrics - Topic š Ontologies! à We have lots of people working on them!! š We have ENORMOUS amounts of CSVs… š Can we give semantics to everything? SURE!!
  • 11. Wait that’s cool for anything BUT GLAM Data
  • 12.

  • 13. So now what? š  We now have the three dimensions. Are they enough? Are they too much? š  Europeana: has all of them (in part) [depending on the availability of the single institutions] š  City of Chicago: Has all of them and they are pretty well structured [lots of id columns enabling foreing keys] š  Most datasets: L
  • 14. Let’s discuss this!!! Thanks, by the way!
