Weekliii Round-Up: News on Smart Data's Role in Big Data and Environmental Resource Metadata

It is time to kick back, relax, and catch up on the news and posts we have shared throughout this week. We're diving into the world of Knowledge Management for Environmental Resources, Smart Data, and Canadian pipelines in today's #WeekliiiRoundUp. Read more below!

Big Data vs. Smart Data

Have you heard of "Smart Data"? Turns out, it is Big Data's clean and condensed counterpart. The large volumes of information that synonymous with the Big Data revolution can often be overwhelming.
