A Lunch and Learn Companion Fact Sheet

With new technology, we have the ability to access and use large amounts of data and information on many different platforms. Now we’re using that ability to tell a story about Edmonton.

This fact sheet explains what open data means, how the City of Edmonton is using it, and two of our presenter Matthew Dance’s projects.

We’re proud to spread awareness of the Aboriginal Edmonton dataset, which names FNMI places, describes their locations in terms of official place names, and details the origins of their names. You can access this at Edmonton’s open data portal.

And, with Matthew, we’re inviting you to participate in the Naming Edmonton initiative. For more on that, visit namingedmonton.com.
