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.
