Documentation:Data Mash-up Meetings
Research can be a lonely business, but it doesn’t have to be! Why not help organize an open day or class session for students can bring their data and skills and mash them together? Just imagine what the War of 1812 could look like if plotted on Google Maps. Or if political science students were taught some cool infographic tools for representing political expenditures. You could use a digital projector to show these data mash-ups happening live and even have prizes for the best mash-up.
