GeoDataHack 2018

The Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (NRCan) in cooperation with People in Motion Lab (UNB) have organized the first data hackathon on Geospatial Intelligence (GeoDataHack) in Ottawa, Ontario on March 13–15 2018. In total, 30 participants from different levels of Canadian government and academia worked in multidisciplinary teams and had access to more than 50 geospatial data sets. It was a unique experience for our students to work with new algorithms/software, new data sets and a multidisciplinary group of professionals. The GeoDataHack themes were:
  • Travel Behaviour and Communications in Smart City
  • Crowd Dynamics
  • Recreation Trails in Gatineau Park and
  • Managing Response and Impact of Seasonal Flooding​
