Apps for Amsterdam

Apps for Amsterdam 2 was the second open data contest of the municipality of Amsterdam, in which developers were challenged to build apps based on municipality’s data. Besides the contest, in 2012 and 2013 informative meetings about open data were held where civil servants, developers and anyone interested could ask questions. Apps could be submitted if they relate to one of these six themes; safety, mobility, vacancy, energy, tourism & culture and democracy.

Results en next steps
The contest ended on October 19th 2012. The three apps that were chosen for further development can be found at www.appsformasterdam.nl (also available in English). Apps for Amsterdam 2 is part of the Open Data program of the municipality of Amsterdam; after the contest the program will continue with other initiatives that stimulate ‘Open Data’.
