This is very interesting. I work in a museum where we have recently made our Collection data freely available. We also put the data on Google’s data mining platform Big Query.
I have so many questions for you!
- Why limit this service to New Zealand?
- How does Grace compare with something like Big Query?
- Do you think that it’s important for collecting institutions to move toward interoperable data standards, or will it become a moot point because of the rise of data mining and tidying services like Grace?
