Digital Earth: What the hack?

An AGILE workshop on advancing co-creation in smart cities. For more than five years, hackathons, hack days, hackfests and the like revolutionise software development all across our planet.

The aim of the workshop will be to elaborate on the possibilities of using geospatial information and processing across multiple sectors, and thereby implementing Digital Earth applications, i.e. applications of next-generation GIS and SDI. With this event, we initiate a coordinated discussion in the topic and provide the required groundwork for future hackathons and mapathons, in the form of publications providing guidelines. We will particularly investigate possibilities for organizing parallel events as competitions between (smart) cities. Linda See will be giving a presentation on IIASA experiences in past hackathons. Please follow the link to visit the workshop website.

The workshop will be of interest for:

  1. Anybody who has already participated in a hackathon or a crowd sourcing event.
  2. Experts who have organised open data hackathons in European cities and can share their lessons.
  3. Potential sponsors of future hacking events.
  4. Any AGILE member or other geographic information scientist interested in this newly evolving and exciting topic.
