Je voulais profiter du #GeoSDIS pr interpeller (gentiment, hein 😇) les géomaticien-nes des #Sdis et leurs responsables (DDSIS)
Je lance un appel à déposer sur @datagouvfr les jeux de données des localisations des centres de secours de chaque Sdis et + (si affinités)
⬇️#Thread
Actuellement, seuls 4 Sdis l'ont fait: @SDMIS69, @pompiersdugard, @sdis67 et @SDIS81, sans oublier @PompiersParis et @MarinsPompiers et je les en remercie.
Je n'oublie pas le @SDIS_10 qui sans les avoir déposés en #OpenData, nous les a fourni bien volontiers. Poke @DDSIS10 ;)
Sachez que la communauté #OpenStreetMap profite de toutes ces données #OpenData pour améliorer la sécurité de nos concitoyens par le biais de la cartographie #résilience
Nous sommes beaucoup à nous intéresser à ce sujet.

This thread is entirely 2018 analysis and as unbiased as I can make it. Collated as I find a lack of signposts to the raw analysis in the media and political discourse, which are high on spin low on facts. Hopefully this will be helpful.

Spending the morning with our dear colleagues @translatores to learn about “Linguistic linked #opendata for #terminology” - with Elena Montiel-Ponsoda (Polit. Madrid, a trained #1nt, btw) & @jor_gracia (Uni Zaragoza) #xl8 /cc @Goldsmith_Josh @WordLo @RodolfoMaslias @Jeromobot First slide of the presentation with title and authors
This should be a great preparation for #18TEF in a few weeks which is also all about language/translation data.
We’re starting with the limitations of “traditional data”: lots of stuff out there, connected by hyperlinks, but still accessed 1-by-1, unstructured, difficult to interpret, hard to integrate different formats. Oh my!

On a atteint les 1000 circuits électriques du réseau @rte_france, routables sur #OpenStreetMap ce soir. overpass-turbo.eu/s/yUw
70% du réseau 400/225kV est routable, 400 circuits 225kV ont été ajoutés en 2 ans, le projet a débuté avant 2010 #thread
Au delà des liens, les nœuds du réseau sont aussi décrits, avec une topologie fine. On trouve les points d'arrivée de chaque ligne, les jeux de barres servant à aiguiller l'énergie et les appareils transformateurs, sectionneurs et disjoncteurs.

Only a few more moments until GovLab’s Co-Founder and Chief Research and Development Officer Stefaan Verhulst participates on the #IODC18 panel “Open Data and the Private Sector: Breaking Down Walls.”
Key points before we begin:
- Priv. actors can be data users, intermediaries, or providers
- Incubators and accelerators help hundreds of companies
- Large and small bus use open data for business operations and for products and services
- Open data is a largely untapped resource
Stefaan highlights GovLab’s work on datacollaboratives.org, an initiative that shows how partnerships with the private sector can generate insights that lead to public good. Check out the website for more information.

If you want to make code/data “available”, GitHub isn’t enough.

You must deposit at a DOI-issuing data repository @figshare & @ZENODO_org are both free & awesome; can be synced w/ a GitHub repo

Why GitHub not enough? 1/4
#OpenAccess #OpenData
GitHub is a place for things to be worked on, not for them to live forever.

- Links are fragile (username, repo name)
- Users can delete repos
- GitHub could make your code/data unavailable in the future.

DOI-issuing data repositories preserve your stuff for the future 2/4
Depositing on @KaggleDatasets isn’t good enough for #OpenAccess #OpenData either.

- No API for accessing files without an account
- Fragile URLs
- Kaggle Datasets is a commercial thing.

Do all three! GitHub repo, Kaggle Dataset and @figshare or @ZENODO_ORG 3/4

¡Hola todos!
Antes he tuiteado un artículo sobre supersticiones que me ha parecido interesante y que complementa bastante bien una investigación nuestra. He caído en la cuenta de que no os había contado esta investigación, así que abro hilo y #TuiteoMiPaper
El paper lo tenéis aquí.
Como de costumbre, es #OpenAccess y #OpenData. Se titula “Las personas que creen en lo paranormal tienen mayor tendencia a desarrollar ilusiones causales en el laboratorio”.
Link: journals.plos.org/plosone/articl…
En su día, esta investigación también apareció en los medios. Os dejo el link por si lo queréis leer: elcorreo.com/bizkaia/socied…
Esta pieza se la debemos a @lagamez

It's art up for review in opinions, of course I'm going to gravitate towards something shared with interest, when he didn't say a word for 2 days! Why was he there? #opendata #smartcities #bigdata #ai
I went through every single video he released in hip hop to understand him not saying a word. Easy to work out, he's a very bitter man who has absorbed all his parents immigrant opinions at home #opendata #smartcities #bigdata #ai
His parents are not middle class anywhere & neither is he #opendata #smartcities #bigdata #ai

This article is well-intentioned. But let’s not bullshit about the impact #opendata will have on buses when more fundamental issues are unresolved. wired.co.uk/article/bus-ti…
I mean, come on. A better and more modern bus system? That’s just hyperbole.
I can’t help but compare to the Finnish, here.

Finns: We’ll help you out, but you have 2 years to get your shit together.
UK: We’ll help you out after you have told us to sod off for years. So here is 7 years to sort it.

A short thread from me about #opendata and transport.
1/ Ask Google Maps for public transport directions in Lille, and it'll probably tell you to walk. It might offer some out-of-date timetables for local trains. But it doesn't know about the trams, the metro, or local buses.
2/ Pop over to Rennes (consistently France's best city at #opendata) and you'll get metro and bus and train times and usually the (very simple) fare.
3/ Jump back to Lille and now use Here maps, and you'll get the full set of travel options.

So it’s a Saturday afternoon, it’s 20+ degrees outside – you know what you should do?

That’s right, read a thread about GOVERNMENT ORGANOGRAMS, a year on from our @instituteforgov #IfGhackday #opendata
Organograms aren’t most obvious data thing to get pulses racing. Hardly AI, blockchain (#buzzword), Citymapper etc.

Part of Cameron’s May 2010 pledges (bit.ly/2LXhdqE) to open up data, they include names, salaries, professions, jobs of civil servants & units w/in depts
Maude called them ‘the most comprehensive organisation charts of the UK civil service ever released online’ bit.ly/2uVd28k. Not the flashiest or sexiest datasets, but mgmt info vital both for effectiveness (understanding your workforce) and accountability.

I used @ProjectJupyter to investigate @NSERC_CRSNG expenditure over recent years using #opendata from @OpenGovCan. My exploration is freely available via @mybinderteam here: mybinder.org/v2/gh/colliand… 1/
According to the @OpenGovCan data, Discovery programs @NSERC_CRSNG increased in budget by 16% between 2013 and 2016. 2/
#NSERC leadership was notified of significant gaps in funding for #math and #stats #research by the math/stats Liaison Committee, by Institute Directors, and (publicly) by @NGhoussoub in May. nghoussoub.com/2018/05/09/fet… 3/

Anyone interested in mapping the linguistic diversity of Indian states with the help of this data?

#dataviz #Datavisualization #data #india #OpenData
Maybe, we can compare that with economic indicators and see if there is any correlation between diversity and development.

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n

Now that the lawyers have run their marathon and we wait for the top court to rule, a small personal diary note thread on #Aadhaar & me.

Huge thanks to community of people who have widened my wisdom of how society works. Fellow helpless people helping each other.
It started sometime in 2011, when I knew nothing, enrolled along with family.But our enrollment packets were lost, EID wasnt even searchable. I did write some emails to support, but yielded nothing more than, please enroll again. As the need wasn't real, did not enroll.
Parents gave up at a later date, enrolled, got UID successfully generated. I resisted, mostly because of laziness, but did not have developed trust enough to enroll. On random browsing sessions, have heard Usha Ramanathan on YouTube, but never took deep dive into issues.

1/ Here's a bunch of animated time lapses from active volcanoes around the world.

#VolcanoesFromSpace

Data is from #ESA #Sentinel2 satellites. It's processed with the #Copernicus / @sentinel_hub tools.

You ask why? Because I like looking at images from volcanoes and so do you!
2/ Bogoslof Island is the summit of a submarine stratovolcano in the Bering sea. In 2017 it erupted and the island became MUCH bigger. There's going to be some happy puffin and seals there (the ones that didn't burn in lava flows that is)!

#VolcanoesFromSpace #Sentinel2
3/ Manaro Voui is a shield volcano in Vanuatu. Starting in 2017 and still going today it's continuously erupting. People are evacuated.

Chief Tari One of Ambanga has conducted ceremonial offerings but it seems these have not been accepted.

Quand on parle du peu de femmes en éco, le 1er réflexe est souvent de dire qu'il y en a pas, que veux-tu, on peut pas les inventer !
En gros il y a un problème d'offre, et voilà.
Certes, mais pas que 😉
Petit fil👇pour cette #journeedesfemmes #BdFeco blocnotesdeleco.banque-france.fr/billet-de-blog…
Déjà, le problème d'offre n'est pas flagrant dans les premières années de fac en tout cas :
43 % de femmes en 1ère année de licence
51 % en master 2
38 % en doctorat d’économie (en baisse, 41 % en 2010)
Comme ailleurs dans le monde, il semble y avoir plutôt de bons plafonds de verre. La partie gauche du graph compare la FR aux US et la partie droite donne les effectifs de maîtres de conférence et professeurs dans l’enseignement supérieur en sciences économiques par âge, 2016-17
