In November an event will be organized to promote the API among developers at HACKATHONIST for Smart Istanbul Apps. This hackathon will be organized by the City council and TAGES, both partners in the CitySDK project.

The bus timetables were already released earlier, but now the schedules of the ferries over the Bosporus and the trains have also been released. Shortly to arrive are the following datasets:

  • Schools
  • Coastal places
  • Historic places
  • Hospitals
  • Pavilions (Historical waterside buildings)
  • Shopping areas

The API is open source, including the example applications at Github.
