MacData is an innovative virtual institute, created to identify synergies to foster collaboration among McMaster University’s institutes, centres, and researchers whose work involves the many facets of data (collection, transformation, analysis, visualization). MacData promotes the engagement of researchers and students with industry, government and community to strengthen McMaster’s position as an international leader on all matters related to data. We are not a data warehouse, nor do we collect or create data. We’re devoted to thinking about data and to working with researchers, policy makers, industry experts and the community to help harness the tremendous potential of data.
