Etymologically the word data is derived from the Latin dare, meaning ‘to give’. In this sense, data are raw elements that can be abstracted from (given by) phenomena – measured and recorded in various ways. However, in general use, data refer to those elements that are taken; extracted through observations, computations, experiments, and record keeping (Borgman 2007). Technically, then, what we understand as data are actually capta (derived from the Latin capere, meaning ‘to take’); those units of data that have been selected and harvested from the sum of all potential data (Kitchin and Dodge 2011, as cited in Kitchin 2014).

      mh sellepärast, et selles on kohe tajuda meie maailmakogemise juhuslikkus.

    Vähemalt sõna teab, et neid saab püüda.

    Aga MIKS sõnade algtähendused vahetusse läksid? Kellele see oli kasulik?
