Jonathan Roberts will present Clean.Data. - a tool for discovering cleaned data sets, identifying high value closed datasets, and getting credit for your data analysis work.
Clean.Data. is a tool that will be presented at the White House in the Fall, and we want to highlight NYC data science, and the value of NYC Open Data, when we do.
Dr Jonathan Roberts is an astrophysicist and data scientist. He's worked with telescopes in Argentina, predictions for the Large Hadron Collider and loves playing with NYC open data. He's also passionate about data visualization and consults with NYC tech startups. He's a board member of Energy Infotech NYC and heads up the Clean.Data. Initiative.
Come with data sets you want to explore, or an analysis project you would like to show off. Please register on the site: http://cleandatahub.org before coming.
I'll spend the first 30-45 mins covering the Clean.Data. tool, the API and the backend. I'll also cover how we use Django and D3 to build the application for those that are interested in looking behind the scenes. The rest of the time will be devoted to getting your work onto the site and integrating it with the connected web of open data projects.
In this workshop you'll learn about the Clean.Data. tool, how it can highlight your work, and how you can use it as a data discovery tool. You'll also learn how to query the API to access data directly (this is an Open Data tool after all), and we'll cover some of the graphing in D3.

Come with links to your data projects!
