Air Quality Data Hack’ (24th – 26th February 2023, Dublin) – Develop innovative ideas, solutions, prototypes or proof of concepts to unlock the potential of granular and hyperlocal city air quality data for Dublin City.

As part of Google Project Air View Dublin 50 million measurements of data is made openly available at Google EIE Labs and Dublin’s Open Data Platform, Dublinked to support future research, advocacy & awareness projects around air quality for Dublin.

The hackathon will bring the most innovative, technical and creative minds together with the use of this rich open data

Derilinx have been providing support and maintenance for Smart Dublin Open Data portal (Dublinked) and related Open Data projects since 2015. We have collaborated in the challenges organised by Smart Dublin – such as Active Travel Challenge in 2021 and Climate Action Challenge in 2022. This year we will be supporting them at the Air Quality Data Hackathon by mentoring the teams on the data side and making sure everything runs smoothly from a technical point of view.
