This Wednesday 17th of January 2018, in the CESIRE’s headquarters, a statistics and data analysis workshop has been held, aiming to endow the professors participating in the Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge with the necessary tools to work on the projects with their alumni. These drafts, which will be presented in the challenge, will study different aspects of the city through the analysis of the data published in the Open Data BCN portal.

In the workshop, the different functionalities that spreadsheets offer have been explained for the professors to be able to analyse data, represent it and find correlations between the chosen datasets of the project. An introduction to the QGIS software, a free open source Geographic Information System, has been made.
