TWIST2018 Hackdays in Zürich

su-pa took part in the first TWIST2018 Hackdays !

9 teams were formed on site using and experimenting with open and linked data in collaboration. Besides a lot of other data sets the Statistical Office of the City of Zurich has freshly decided to publish its data as Linked Open Data at the very day of the TWIST2018 Hackdays.

Our hack team created the Zurich's big 5 project together. It's about newcomers in Zurich: Which city quarter matches your preferences? You can find it out by ranking the 5 predefined criteria. The results of data analysis, SPARQL queries and programming are shown in an interactive map. Check it out!
