On the evening of November 4th, the Open Data Institute will celebrate innovation and excellence for the ways in which open data are used and published during the Open Data Awards. Waag’s Smart CitySDK has been nominated in the category of Open Data Publisher.
From maps to API's
Smart CitySDK aimed to define services that can help open up data in the areas of participation, mobility, and tourism in various cities across Europe. Within this project, Waag was responsible for the domain of mobility. While a pilot mobility study was conducted in Amsterdam, the applicability of the services were tested in Helsinki, Manchester, Barcelona, Rome, Istanbul and Lamia.
Within the Smart CitySDK project, Waag created different tools, visualisations, and websites. Examples of such creations include the developer website, CitySDK API, and a map showing all buildings in The Netherlands shaded according to year of construction.
