The Digital Catapult Centre NETV has launched their Data Movement App Competition; an open innovation competition enabling anyone with a passion for technology to design apps for the general public, using data published by the North East Combined Authority’s (NECA) Open Data service.
Explore open travel, transport and weather data
Individuals, groups and companies with an idea for an app can submit suggestions, regardless of their previous experience in designing and building mobile apps. Each idea must use at least one of travel, transport and weather datasets published by the NECA’s Tyne and Wear Urban Traffic Management Control (UTMC) service. This is a fantastic way to explore and understand the many possible uses of open data, allowing everybody to engage with data and create innovative solutions.
