What it does

https://github.com/code-for-venezuela/2019-april-codeathon/tree/master/challenges/HRW-VIZ

How we built it

Extracted data from the PDF files shared for challenge.

Challenges we ran into

  • Data extraction tools like OCR are inaccurate
  • Lack of automated data validation
  • Crowdsourced data entry (like mechanical turk)

Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned

  • OCR tools are fast, though inaccurate
  • Validation of data was required and valuable.

What's next for Open Data and Venezuelan Health Indicators

  • Access to data can be used by researchers, doctors and WHO groups
  • Describe best practices to consume and share this information to citizens
