On Thursday, October 27th, take part in the Toronto Open Data Showcase and see how Open Data can be used to help our communities and create a more financially efficient City!
Open Data is a new thing for most people and understanding its potential and usage is not always easy to understand. That is why this event will show you exactly what can be done with Open Data.
This event is to demo all the amazing tools, visualizations, and platforms that have been created by our members over the last 1.5 years in the Toronto Open Data Book Club. Whether it be Budget, TDSB, Library, 211, 311, Election, or Wellbeing Toronto Data, the tools that will be demoed are nothing short of insightful.
We will have a special guest as Ward 43 Councillor Paul Ainslie will join us in the proceedings. Councillor Ainslie is not only a member of the Toronto Public Library board, but he is also the Chair of the Government Management Committee and a champion of Open Government & Open Data at Toronto Council.
Lastly, we will also share with you an innovative method designed by the Toronto Open Data Book Club and the Ontario Ministry of Housing (MOH) on how Open Data sets can be released in reversed. This method has even helped the MOH be nominated for a national award!
Below is a list of Open Data sets that will be showcased.
