For our 5 December lecture... Time travelling with open data

One thing we won't be short of in the future is data -- we'll have detailed analytics about how we live and the world around us. But what about the past? Is it possible to pull together data about the history of our cities and gain some insight into the past?

In this lecture, Leigh Dodds introduced a project from Bath: Hacked, that is using historical maps and cultural heritage open data to let people begin exploring 400 years of Bath's history.

Leigh Dodds is an associate with the Open Data Institute and the manager of Bath: Hacked's data store. Jon Poole is research manager for Bath & North East Somerset council.
