About us

The Cascadia Data Federation came about when a group of friends working in different sectors of a data rich society realize we are all facing the same challenges in different ways:

  • Where can I find available data I may need?
  • How can I manage and share my data?
  • Who can help me horizontally integrate and analyze my data?
  • Which data models will help me visualize novel patterns in my data
  • How can I network better with people who are dealing with the same data challenges as myself and create a community to accelerate all of our missions?
