Open Data Latency: Moving from static to dynamic open data (In person)

November 8, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


This event is IN PERSON without a virtual attendance option.

Structured data is one thing, open structured data is another and dynamic open data is yet another. By introducing the concept of open data latency, this presentation will highlight differences between types of open data feeds on a four-part continuum: historical, bulk, pull and push. Tableau data visualizations will be used to illustrate which types of open data feeds are suitable for what types of applications. Session participants will benefit from an improved understanding of what open data can actually be used for through the introduction of the concept of open data latency.
