Science Sessions Podcast
http://www.pnas.org/site/podcasts/podcasts.xhtml

From the renowned, multi-disciplinary science journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) comes the Science Sessions. Each of these short podcasts features interviews with scientists (many of whom are members of the National Academy of Sciences) who have discovered a number of fascinating topics. Recent episodes include a conversation with biologist Eve Marder about what the nervous system of crustaceans suggests about neuro-flexibility in humans; a discussion with hydrologist Andrea Rinaldo on how he and his team used cell-phone data in order to analyze human mobility patterns to uncover clues about the spread of cholera; and an interview with climate change researcher Joshua Elliot about how climate change could impact the supply of water for irrigation. These short sessions provide intriguing introductions to a variety of fields of study. Interested listeners can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

Open Data Impact Map

December 02, 2016

Open Data Impact Map
http://opendataenterprise.org/map.html

The Center for Open Data Enterprise aims to “maximize the value of open government data as a public resource, by focusing on data users.” Toward this goal, the Center, in conjunction with Open Data For Development Network (OD4D) recently launched the Open Data Impact Map, an interactive map of organizations – including for-profit, nonprofit, and academic institutions – that use open data to call attention to exactly who uses open government data. Visitors can browse the Map by selecting one of the 97 included countries. Within each country, users can then check out organizations that use open data by the city where they are headquartered.  Alternatively, visitors can explore open data usage by Region of the world or by Sector. As an included infographic reveals, government open data is most frequently used by Information Technology (IT) and Geospatial organizations. Finally, visitors may opt to browse this data by name of Organization (the site features 1,727 in total). The Map is accompanied by a 28-page report.
