Challenge by World from Space
This is an open challenge, so you can come with any idea from the field of Earth Observation. We really want you to have as much freedom as possible!
In this challenge, you will get travel and tourism datasets from Kiwi.com and you should combine them with Earth Observation data to create something new!
Challenge by Czechitas
Czechitas are mentoring this challenge as a way to show the need for integrating different data sources into one stream: you should come up with an architecture and prototype showing the combination of Earth Observation with given datasets.
All of these categories will have their presentations with an explanation of given datasets at the hackathon itself.
There is no need to prepare before the hackathon. Just prepare your brains.
Petr is an enthusiast to technologies, start-ups and with a vision of changing today´s society at least a little bit (to it´s better). Throughout the years he was at the establishing of dozens of companies.
