BERDI: An interface to navigate 20 years of environmental and socio-economic data
Governments are buried in hard-to-search PDF documents that hold data with great value for citizens, scientists, and public servants. At the Canada Energy Regulator, we developed data science methods to liberate 20 years – and tens of thousands of kilometres – of environmental and socio-economic data from over 1900 PDF documents from oil and gas pipeline applications. We made it easy to search and explore this data in our powerful and user-friendly search tool, BERDI.
