Data

VVRP uses crowdsourced data to fix potholes

Curaçao has a challenging relationship with data. On the one hand everyone wants to get their hands on as much data as possible (privacy be damned sometimes) but we quite often ignore the data we have to make decisions. And finding people willing to share their data is like finding a needle in a stack of needles. This is why last week was so positively refreshing; when the Department of Traffic, Transport, and Urban Planning (VVRP) asked the people to share pothole locations for the department to fix.
