Open Source Code Repository for Open Data in Finland

With open data on governance, economics, traffic, geographic information rapidly increasing, there is a clear need for free and open tools for analyzing it. Making the analytical tools widely available and facilitating their use will increase the value of the public data resources.

Here at Louhos we aim at:
  1. Providing a central hub that facilitates efficient access and utilization of public data resources
  2. Developing analytical tools and using them for new insights into how the society works
  3. Actually, we think Simon Rogers said it better we ever could, so read the quote on the right

If you asked me what a data scientist was, I would say someone who can bridge the raw data and the analysis - and make it accessible. It's a democratising role; by bringing the data to the people, you make the world just a little bit better

Simon Rogers, Guardian.
