Hi Carolin and Aristide,
I have a question about dealing with private data. In one of the first sessions you mentioned that if there is private data we should store it somewhere (is a local computer/external hard drive fine?) and then add the description of the dataset on the MoC dashboard to show that you actually have the data. The issue is however, that it then still is not possible to make nice flow diagrams with this data online as the data cannot become public. How will we deal with this? Can we make the flow diagrams ourselves? Is there an offline version of this to be able to still share the private data internally in the municipality of Apeldoorn?
This is a general question that the municipality has also asked me which we briefly have talked about before starting the course. Now, I have a specific example for it. I have found some information from LMA (National waste reporting database, www.lma.nl). The information is on quantities of waste materials coming from and going to Apeldoorn which would be very interesting to use for understanding the material flows of Apeldoorn. I could try to anonimize data and see if LMA agrees that there are possibilities of making parts of the data public to be able to load it into the MoC dashboard. However, then it must be clear what the benefits of that approach are. In the end the data is most relevant for Apeldoorn itself and perhaps even more useful for the municipality when it is not anonymous. Also, perhaps in the near future similar cases as this one will occur so I am curious what you think of this and how we can deal with this appropriately.
