Smart City Hackathon

In cooperation with TU Kaiserslautern, DFKI Kaiserslautern, Mannheim University of Applied Sciences, Leitstelle Xplanung / XBau and Kaiserslautern City Council, the SRL organizes a two-day workshop in the run-up to the Planners’ Meeting to explore the value and potential of spatial and open data. Against the backdrop of the growing amount of digital data, open-data platforms and crowdsourced data, we invite students to explore opportunities and challenges for the Smart City.

In the two-day workshop, together with the participants we explore the use of digital infrastructures for the digital cities of tomorrow, present the added value of Open Data data, and break new ground in urban analysis and monitoring.
