Cultural Open Data: Mash Up the Past, Explore the Future

Our three national museums, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, Canada Aviation and Space Museum and the Canada Science and Technology Museum released our first open data sets on the Government of Canada’s Open Data Portal in November of last year. With the second annual Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE) Hackathon fast approaching, the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation is looking forward to seeing the creative, surprising ways coders across the country will mash up data sets to create useful applications for Canadians from coast to coast to coast.
