The DataBC Blog has a new look.
The world of data is constantly evolving and this redesigned blog is a space to continue the conversation with British Columbians about government data. The list of data assets – including raw data, applications and application program interfaces – is ever-expanding and this blog shares real stories about how these things are being used in interesting ways.
Check back often to read the latest posts and leave a comment to tell us what you think. Your input helps guide our decisions about future content.
Thanks for visiting the DataBC Blog and being part of the conversation on government data.
