More about the event:
We have all heard and read about the difficulties public organizations and health agencies have had sharing spatial data with each other due to a myriad of issues. Working with public datasets at scale is a challenge. For many of us, it involves finding, cleaning, and standardizing disparate local datasets from over 3000 counties just in the USA. Now imagine the complexities across national boundaries and with the data structure in each county. Every county and state does its data differently, and there is no one standard for normalizing this data... And it's a deeply human problem -- AI just won't cut it. We've put together a stellar panel for this event as we discuss the importance of standardization when working with disparate public datasets.
