OUseful: New public data Q&A site launches

Open University lecturer, self-proclaimed mashup artist and all-round bright spark Tony Hirst blogs about a new Q&A site designed to help people with open data questions.

GetTheData.org is in “startup/bootstrapping” phase at the moment but already has a fair bit of information up.

The idea behind the site is to field questions and answers relating to the practicalities of working with public open data: from discovering data sets, to combining data from different sources in appropriate ways, getting data into formats you can happily work with, or that will play nicely with visualisation or analysis tools you already have, and so on.
