June 2, 2015 |

mappingSeventh session of the second day of POINT conference featured Nate Smith (Development Seed) and Milica Kovačević (CDT Montenegro) as a moderator.

Development Seed is mapping elections from Afghanistan to the United States, analyzing public health and economic data from Palestine to Illinois, and leading the strategy and development behind data.worldbank.org, open.undp.org.

Nate presented various projects of Development Seed and emphasized the importance of good presentation and understanding of data, because without understanding the data, you cannot create good strategies.

He also strongly feels that data should be open and available to citizens, and that we need to use Open Tools for Open Data, because that enables citizens to participate in creating the strategies in their countries.
