THE HACKATHON CHALLENGE
We invite you to come up with creative solutions to enhance the value chain of the management of assets, resources, and/or services within the smart city ecosystem by using GeoE3 location-based data. Location-based data can be combined with any open-source data to derive even more value from the data. The new solutions should be as universal as possible, in other words they should be replicable in any other city or country given that similar data is available. The location-based data can be freely combined with any other (open) data source to come up with creative new ways to improve the lives of certain groups of people, businesses, or even society as a whole.
