As part of THATcamp Melbourne, PROV is opening up a treasure trove of historic data to you eager hackers in a bid to bring the state archives into the 23rd Century! Weâ€™ll put on the coffee, the tasty treats and a venue…all we ask of you is a laptop, a disposition towards creativity, and a desire to interpret, find, play and connect.
Thereâ€™ll be real live judges, prizes, and the winners will show off their creations on Friday night 25 March at THATcamp Melbourne.
As well as providing data from our collection weâ€™ll be linking to other datasets as they come on board. So keep your eye on THATcamp Melbourne, and #thatcamp on twitter for updates. If you would like to bring along some data, or suggest a set that you think would be worthwhile please add the details here http://goo.gl/g1CUE. We’d also like to know if you have suggestions for tools/apps/visualisations etc you’d like to see built!
