Dear colleagues, 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/ 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. Great work Julia and everyone. Best wishes, Suchith Dr. Suchith Anand http://www.geoforall.org/ http://opensourcegeospatial.icaci.org/ GeoForAll - Building and expanding Open Geospatial Science  http://opendataday.org/  http://www.ecmwf.int/  http://opensourcegeospatial.icaci.org/2016/02/flood-awareness-education-platform/ This message and any attachment are intended solely for the addressee and may contain confidential information.
