Geocoding

IT participated in International Open Data Day http://opendataday.org/ and Code for America's CodeAcross weekend in 2016.  

At the first code-a-thon event, in 2015, participants worked on eight projects including guidelines for creating accessible maps online, an app for bicyclists based on Open Street maps, and a tool to identify vacant lots that would be good candidates for urban farming.

Additional involvement

Hack for MN video with introductions from Otto Doll, City of Minneapolis CIO, Carolyn Parnell, State of Minnesota CIO, and Andrea Casselton, City of St. Paul CIO.  Seventy-five participants from the Twin Cities worked on 13 projects over the course of 19 hours.

IT held follow up meetings with three teams to help advance their application development projects: mspbus.org, DataPark, and Connect Me Minneapolis.

“There is a huge need for these kinds of community org/tech community collaborations, and I was amazed by the breadth and depth of the project ideas. Keep this up-I'd definitely attend more of these in the future!” ~ Visualizing Neighborhoods hack event participant.
