Members Sue Ball and Edafe Onerhime have been collaborating through Leeds Creative Time Bank around ‘Open Data’. With 5 hours of timebank credits, Sue Ball requested Edafe Onerhime to use her skills as an Open Data Specialist to investigate empty commercial property and land in Leeds South Bank. Edafe has produced an online map using business rates data from Leeds Data Mill to which Sue is ‘pinning’ images of each unit via twitter ( see image above). This map will be developed through public participative walks and other forms of public interface to consider the wider regeneration of this area of the city. Sue will be putting more requests through the timebank network.
