Camden Talks Data

Camden Talks Data is a series of events and videos which explain how we are using data. The series is part of an ongoing commitment to our Data Charter

Each event will highlight a particular council project that has been enabled by data techniques. 

On the panel for each event will be: 

  • a representative from a council service to describe the project’s intended benefits 
  • data professionals to explain how data techniques have helped deliver those benefits 

After the talk, attendees will work in groups to decide on questions to ask the panel. 

Who can attend 

Anyone can attend our Camden Talks Data events. 

Events are free, but we ask you to book a ticket in advance to help our planning. 

Upcoming events 

Camden Talks Data events will be scheduled quarterly.

Sidings Community Centre

6 to 7.30pm 

At this event, we will explain how we use location-based data to create a picture using maps. 

Maps are created by a set of tools called Geographic Information Systems, or GIS. Our GIS team will use case studies to show how we gain better insights using maps and provide better information to our residents.
