(Submission #370)


Last year, the first VGI and Citizen Observatories INSPIRE Hack was organised in the frame of the INSPIRE Conference in Barcelona. This workshop aims to be the second hackathon which will be a continuation of the activities from the first year with a different set-up. The hack will start before the conference, already in July 2017, and this session will be a showcase of the hack results. The hackathon itself and the team work will be done remotely. Problems will derived from H2020 project(s)pilots and the INSPIRE Hack will contribute to the work done in these pilots Open Data, VGI and Citizens Observatories INSPIRE Hack will be the second hackathon combined with the INSPIRE conference with the aim to create a space, where those with the interest in the potential of VGI and citizen observatories and European projects can meet, present their data sets, tools and components and discuss and explore how results, ideas and knowledge can be combined in possible ways for new applications and new project ideas. The Open Data, VGI and Citizens Observatories INSPIRE Hack will run remotely already from July and an important objective will be to build a long time cooperation between projects, initiatives and data sets. In July, a call for ideas and remote team building will be organised. The work will start immediately after that and finish by the INSPIRE Conference. This workshop at the INSPIRE conference will provide a space for teams to meet physically and to present the hackathon results and ideas.
