Wishing you all Happy OpenDataDay 2017
Open Data Day  is an annual celebration of open data all over the world. For the seventh time in history, groups from around the world will create local events on the day where they will use open data in their communities. It is an opportunity to show the benefits of open data and encourage the adoption of open data policies in government, business and civil society. Details at http://opendataday.org/
Weather data is critical for agriculture. I thank our GeoForAll colleagues in The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) at Reading who are running the #OpenDataHack @ECMWF – Beyond weather: explore creative uses of open data ECMWF this weekend.
I have good memories of my visit last year for the first hackathon on a Global Flood Awareness System (GloFAS)  they organised .
