Data Canvas’ Sense Your City project is a contest for people to develop applications using data from 100 sensors built by people in 7 cities. If you’re from one of the 7 participating cities (San Francisco, Boston, Geneva, Rio de Janeiro, Bangalore, Singapore or Shanghai) you can apply to receive a sensor from Data Canvas (Deadline: December 5, 2014!).
Data Canvas has organised several other neat projects on the use and visualisation of data (public transport, and urban digital displays for air quality) and the Sense Your City project looks even more ambitious. We’ll be looking forward to seeing the results (and maybe developing an application).
Here’s the latest weather data from my sensor (Neubau Vienna).
