Invariably, the Government data is complex and most of the efforts are focused on getting and using this data. This session will focus on the challenges encountered while analyzing Government data and how to address these challenges based on my experiences working with various Government departments. OpenStreetMaps have been used all along to encourage freely reusable geo-spatial data.
