An innovative project in parallel to the DD4D conference is called Reality Checks:


‘Placed at local community level Reality Check projects will observe the use, visualisation, communication and understanding of data in a particular context. The resulting case studies will provide a crosssection of solutions for data access, communication and visualisation around the world. …. ‘ People around the world can participate in gathering information on how we communicate, visualise and understand data in various contexts’. 

The case studies will be presented in the 3rd OECD Forum in Busan, Korea on 27–30 October 2009.
