NYC Open Data Policy Hack Day Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 11:00 AM (ET) REGISTER HERE
NYC recently enacted Local Law 11 of 2012, which mandates citywide open data in machine-readable formats through a centralized, publicly accessible web site. The NYC Open Data portal was launched in late 2011 to meet this need. The legislation additionally mandates the creation of technical standards in support of this initiative.
Join NYC DoITT’s team from the Office of Strategic Technology Development and the open government community – policymakers, technologists, civic hackers, app developers, academics, journalists and data enthusiasts – for an engaging day of discussions, drafting, planning and hacking.
Don’t wait until the event: collaborate on NYC’s Open Data Policies, Technical Standards, and Guidelines wiki now.
The 1st prize winner was “Can I Park Here?” designed by @Eric Rafaloff which tells users if it is legal to park in a space in real-time.
The 3rd prize winner was NYC TaxiTracker, designed by Reinvent NYC.gov alum @_alastair, which allows users to track cab medallion numbers and drivers, compare route data and review their cab experiences.
