Data Rescue Denton

DataRescue is a one-day hack-a-thon type event welcome to volunteers from all backgrounds and technical abilities. Following a workflow developed from the initial DataRescuePhilly event at UPenn, we will create trustworthy copies of federal climate change and environmental data.

#DataRescueDenton is an opportunity for programmers, scientists, archivists, activists, and volunteers of all kinds to identify, back-up, and help preserve publicly accessible federal data resources in the public interest, in the event they are removed from public view and use. We will hear from experts on the challenges of preserving born-digital at-risk data and related issues followed by breakout sessions for the hack-a-thon.
