GetTheData is a new Q&A site where you can ask your data related questions, including, but not limited to, the following:

* where to find data relating to a particular issue;
* how to query Linked Data sources to get just the data set you require;
* what tools to use to explore a data set in a visual way;
* how to cleanse data or get it into a format you can work with using third party visualisation or analysis tools.

At GetTheData.org, you can ask and answer questions, comment and vote for the questions of others and their answers. Both questions and answers can be revised and improved. Questions can be tagged with the relevant keywords to simplify future access and organize the accumulated material.

The idea behind the site is to field questions and answers relating to the practicalities of working with public open data: from discovering data sets, to combining data from different sources in appropriate ways, getting data into formats you can happily work with.
