We like to meet!

There are three types of events listed here:

  • regular meetups we organise every 3 weeks (or more frequently!) to get the community together, keep the conversations going, and cover topics of general interest;
  • full-day events: a hackothon or conference to push the envelope, get knee-deep and drive enthusiasm for open data
  • open data-related events in Hong Kong: we’ll showcase such events here.

ODHK.meet.30: Open Mapping Data & Research Data Management Policy

In a world where citizens can 3D map areas with drones, or annotate and improve upon OpenStreetMaps, the HK Lands department still charges “reproduction costs” for PDFs of government maps.
