Putting historical floodplains around Leeds (from the environment agency) on a map, and overlaying the last five years planning applications (from Leeds Council) gives us an interesting answer.
The Leeds Data Mill Hack event was unlike other hackathons we’ve previously attended in such a way that it was intended to solve problems; or rather, to ask the right questions.
“There was an idea emerging here, a tool users could access that would provide valuable information about a certain event or exhibition…”
At the time of writing this post, we are on day 2 of a hack event, which is being held at Leeds City Museum. There are 5 interdisciplinary groups working very hard to turn a concept into a working prototype.
The Leeds Data Mill website is now live and we invite you to explore the data sets we’ve collected so far.
This is the first event hosted by Leeds Data Mill and is open to all to participate. With your help we will explore the myths and reality of the services we use on a day-to-day basis to understand what is the quality of life of a Leeds citizen.
