Harnessing the power of over 120 open data portals with Scout – Juan Pablo Sarmiento

Scout is a new way to browse over 120 open data portals globally. It focuses on data discoverability, joinability, and creating curated collections of datasets that deal with a specific subject. Scout seeks to answer the question: does this data exist and where can I find it? By treating dataset discovery as a recommendation problem, Scout allows you to quickly identify datasets that are related to each other and that can potentially be joined together using a common ID. Having found these datasets, Scout makes it easy to share your findings with others through shareable collections. Join us for a hands-on workshop on how to use Scout’s many features to contribute to your next open data project.
