Basic questions about data
Over the past couple of years I’ve written several posts that each focus on trying to answer a simple question relating to data and/or open data.
I’ve collected them together into a list here for easier reference. I’ll update the list as I write more related posts:
- What is a dataset?
- What does your dataset contain?
- How do we attribute data?
- What is an open API?
- What is derived data?
I find that asking and then trying to answer these questions are a good way to develop understanding. Often there are a number of underlying questions or issues that can be more easily surfaced.
