Workshop Description

The workshop is held amidst the Global Data Revolution which has reached the land sector. Government data portals, open access academic journals, community mapping initiatives and other citizen-generated data - there is a palpable positive drive across the world that allows processes such as data collection to be more inclusive and open.

But, however, with this data momentum there are still many barriers and questions that arises. These include, Who can access the data, and how? What data is reliable? Who owns the data? What data is up to date? Can I use the data without inflicting harm?
