GROUP 2: Data
What are the various tools to aggregate data into information? Identify the Big Data that allows the community to understand what they want to know and what to do about it (need the context in order to interpret). Explain how to do this and challenges. An issue of data management – how to collect, where to store, what’s the quality and how to share.
