These are the teams that submitted applications for NC DataJam competition. Each team did a 5-minute pitch followed by a 2 minute Q & A with judges. See all teams:
New Cartographers —
Building off a project presented at CityCamp NC, Kids Transit enables students and parents to identify safe routes to school, organize ad hoc walking or biking groups, improves community involvement, identifies barriers to pedestrian and cycling mobility, and helps school systems reduce bus use and improve the air quality of schools.
OverEasy is solving the problem of access for anyone who stands to benefit from open geospatial data. The user makes just two decisions and they receive a beautiful, useful and printable report. The software is web-based and can sit on top of the many open data sources and APIs currently published on the web.
NC Food Inspector —
The team assembled at National Day of Civic Hacking and NC City Camp / NC DataPalooza events with the purpose of extending the use of open restaurant inspection and violation data from Wake County. Building off of the success of the existing Code for Durham application, NC Food Inspector, the team will add CDC Food Borne Illness Risk Factor data to the existing violations data. The team is a mix of front end and back end developers, designers, project management and interested citizens.
BCombs is a single source platform that allows children, family and other Patrons, to save time searching through web pages, magazines and other media, by matching their needs/wants with activities and events offered by Municipalities, Businesses and other Providers. We aggregate activities, such as soccer/piano lessons & local festivals, use member profiles & interest to make recommendations, and help families make the most of their time.Imagine reviewing a list of all summer camps within 5 miles, using criteria you deem important, learning your favorite entertainer is in town for 1 night; and/or rescheduling work meetings because you set a reminder for the NC State Veterinarian fair, which your family enjoyed last year, was just scheduled. All in one platform
Virtual Raleigh —
We are creating a 3D model of Raleigh where many different data sets can be viewed and compared. For example zoning can be displayed with the surrounding buildings. Proposed and active constructions projects can be seen in context of the city around them from planning through completion. The application will be available as a website and geo-located mobile app.
Wake Forest NC Open Data —
Currently there is no easy access to Wake Forest, NC open data. Data sets exist, but there is no centralized location. The goal is to build a portal for people to easily find and use the data. This solution will be built using open source tools to host links to the open source data.
The greenSTEM Network connects students to the environment by monitoring and mining data from gardens, green roofs, and various types of green stormwater infrastructure.Using low-cost, DIY sensor kits and open-source code, the greenSTEM Network displays real-time environmental data (such as soil moisture, precipitation, sunlight, and temperature) to help students maintain healthy school gardens, learn about water-related issues, and conduct scientific experiments.
Red Alerts —
Providing automatic location-specific actionable instructions for tornado warnings
NC School Monitor —
Each year NCDPI makes 1.5 million rows of student achievement data available as open data. This goes down to each grade and subject all of NC’s 2,600 public and charter schools. The school monitor enables the public to visualize and compare this data. This encourages parent involvement and choice in their children’s current and potential schools.
Congratulations to NC Food Inspector Team, who won the first place Esri $1000 prize, and to Wake Forest NC Open Data, who entered on a whim and won the special Esri $500 prize for best use of Esri Technology.
