Open:Data:Night – how we get from A to B, an exploration of travel data – watch it back

There are nearly 10,000 miles of railway lines and 250,000 miles of roads in the UK, which if laid out, would get you to the moon (although not back!). We likely use these things every day – but probably rarely think about them. Who else uses them? When? Why?

And how can communities be involved in questions about how we get from A to B?

Speakers were:

It was a fantastic evening with loads of practical stuff to takeaway. Watch it here:
