I realized a few days ago that I didn’t write a a post about why I launched this blog. So I’ll take this opportunity to write about why this blog was created and what you will get out of it.
In my professional life I work with people and organizations who are looking for data to beef up their grants, reports and business plans. Either they are in the process of starting a business/grant writing or they already have a plan in place and need to fine-tune it. This is where I come in and educate them on the types of data that are available for them. I always steer clients towards free data as there is a plethora of them waiting to be used.
So this blog will be a stage to showcase what I have used in the past and what I discover during my own research. I’ll discuss government data, business data and GIS/mapping resources that I think will be beneficial for the public to be aware of. So bookmark my site and sign-up for updates, you won’t want to miss a post!
