Eric Barrett and Cristina Maza from JumpStart Georgia and George Chanturia from Transparency International Georgia were chatting it up and we realized it was about time the public had accessible to land registry data in Georgia that it could analyze and use to monitor the government. We agreed to set aside Monday, 19 May starting at 11am at JumpStart's office, to solve this issue by organizing a small hackathon.
We will work together to discuss what data we need/can get and how to get that data and continue updating it in a way that will be accessible to all who need/want access to it.
One of the most important parts of this event will be deciding how to use this information. What ideas do you have? What types of analysis will this allow us to conduct that we can't now? What will this data shed light on that we need to know in a society governed in a transparent way? What data can we combine this with to do more advanced analysis? company registry data? party finance data? procurement data? What makes sense? How can we then communicate this data? visualize it?
We hope you can make it!
