Make the city smarter!

How can cities be developed using spatial information? We are looking for teams to innovate creative solutions that can improve the lives of urban residents by using location data.

In the international Location intelligence for smart cities -hackathon teams use various sensor and remote sensing data and combine it with any open-source data to derive even more value from the data. The goal of this hackathon is to innovate new ideas and derive additional value by leveraging location-based data from Finland and Estonia in the smart city context.

The hackathon will be held in Helsinki at Maria01 from 2 to 3 March and at the same time online. Apply to the hackathon no later than 22 February. We will organise a webinar on 31 January in which we will tell you more about the challenge of the hackathon and the data used in it.  

We offer great prizes, for example 10,000 € to be divided between the top teams and a trip to Leipzig Data Week.

The two-day event is organised by the National Land Survey of Finland and the Estonian Land Board Maa-Amet.
