Promote the use and improve accessibility of open data

City of Calgary has a very awesome open data portal of which I believe it is under utilized. Reasons include lack of promotion of use such as hackathons and learning workshops.

 

We have a good startup community and alot of eager/creative social entrepreneurs. If the City can promote more events such as opendata hackathons or help advertising tools utilizing opendata and providing more real-time data-sets (ie. free parking stalls available in a given area or emergency room wait times), magic can truly happen. Not only can we create more tech startups, but also more ways to improve the city through the use of technology and data.
