Create a way to make official reports from Venezuela available to citizens, researchers, WHO and other Health Organizations

What it does

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
