Then, we also disclose the "magic 3 steps" of location analytics which combines own data with foreign open data. One can do this since location is "the universal foreign key": Given geonames or address data, step one is to geocode it (i.e. adding a coordinate attribute), then step two is to spatially join (i.e. combining) it with 3rd party geodata, then finally (step 3) is doing the data analysis or geovisualization.
And since we're talking about data mining the planet, we're using OSM for most of the examples as 3rd party geodata. But there's more open data around which will be conclusion where we give tipps on how to discover more open geodata.
