On Saturday 6th March 2021, the eleventh Open Data Day took place with people around the world organising hundreds of events to celebrate, promote and spread the use of open data. Thanks to generous support from key funders, the Open Knowledge Foundation was able to support the running of more than 60 of these events via our mini-grants scheme.
Debating how important open data maps are for the improvement and the implementation of new and successful bike-sharing systems (BSSs) with the main world references on this matter; Paul DeMaio from The Meddin Bike-sharing World Map; Oliver O´Brien from the Bike Share Map; and Sam Herr from North American BikeShare Association.
The LABIKS Open Data Day Event, Open Mapping and Successful BSSs, focused on the importance of collecting bike sharing systems data to understand and to recognise its unique elements and its possible successes and challenges.

The importance of open data standardisation to improve the mobility systems in Latin America and the importance of the existing open bike-sharing maps; getting to know more about GBFS, the open data standard for shared micromobility, and how this tool shall be used; micromobility opportunitties and challenges during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
We love Open Data Day because it is a wonderful event to celebrate and promote what our company LABIKS believe: the importance of sharing and spreading data, information and knowledge.
