User experience in Kampusareena challenge by KIRA-digi:Building information modeling (BIM) is widely in use for building design and construction but killer applications for use and maintenance are still rare. Help us to find the next big thing in BIM for UX or BIM for FM. Create innovative solutions that take the user experience of Kampusareena to the next level from either visitor or maintenance perspective. In the hackathon, the IFC models (architectural, structural and MEP) of Kampusareena are available in addition to the rich variety of cool tech.Prize: 1000€ gift card to

Digital cities challenge by PTA:Many cities are active in building 3D city models, and the National Land Survey is aiming to compose, step by step, a national database of 3D buildings of the whole country. However, questions about the benefits of these 3D city models have been raised. Help us to convince the sceptics how 3D data of cities can make everyday life more economic, environmentally friendly, rich in experience, or just more fun. Create smart solutions that apply 3D buildings data together with open data. In the hackathon, the 3D city model of Tampere is available in addition to the rich variety of open dataset from the city.Prize: 1000€ gift card to
