About Apps for Amsterdam
Both the public and private sectors have huge amounts of factual information about our society. From crime figures to garbage collection routes, the quality of schools or traffic statistics. During the Apps for Amsterdam contest it is all about this data and the applications that can be developed with it.
The contest started in the Spring of 2012. In the meantime, new data is released (eg data from different city districts, locations of surveillance cameras, information from the Amsterdam Tourism & Convention Board (ATCB) and real-time traffic data from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport and Traffic). Furthermore, we brought developers and data owners together in de Waag for an Open Data Bootcamp in October. This was a day filled with inspiring speakers, cases and API sessions.
