Consumer Data Research Centre

Big Data Network exhibition at the RGS Annual Conference

The Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC), along with the Economic and Social  Research Council’s (ESRC) Big Data Network partners hosted an exhibition about big data at this year’s Royal Geographical Society Annual Conference.

The joint exhibition on Thursday 1 September asked the question ‘What can big data tell us?’, with the CDRC, Business & Local Government Data Research Centre (BLG), Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC), UK Data Service (UKDS), Administrative Data Research Centre-England (ADRC-E) hosting interactive stands to discuss the theme and to showcase services available within each centre which can prove useful for attendees in their own area of work.

Taking place throughout the day and attended by a rep from each Centre, the event had an excellent turnout. With the CDRC, attendees were particularly interested in our interactive mapping portal and information about accessing our safeguarded and secure data.

Attendees also engaged in a discussion about the types of datasets they would like to see the network host and why. Feedback ranged from time series to food consumption datasets.
