App Contest to advance analysis on City Open Data

FoxtrotCode.com, a platform to accelerate app development for data projects, announced the “Understanding Crime in America” contest.

FoxtrotCode.com is offering free access to develop apps using crime data from over 17 police jurisdictions, Twitter, the Weather Company, in addition to other sources.

The most popular apps submitted on FoxtrotCode.com will be awarded $10,000 in total cash prizes. The goal of the contest is to raise awareness around the President’s Police Data Initiative and to demonstrate the public benefit of having more crime data publicly accessible. The contest began on July 15th and expects to culminate on August 29th.

"We have the platform to help advance the PDI and City Open Data. The Police departments can look at Foxtrot Code as a resource for community driven analysis on problems related to violence or crime in general. We expect the results from this project will help city officials see the importance of sharing more data to better understand crime problems," Ed Fullman.
