Hello Tucson! It's time again for our annual blowout civic hacking event! This is an all-day event for you to pitch your idea to help make Tucson a better place, or help someone else make their idea a reality!
Can you create an application leveraging the U.S. Census Bureau’s City SDK that addresses an integrated sustainability problem in your city? Integrated sustainability problems may include a mix of Economic, Environmental, Social, Cultural, Housing themes.
For your community, what maps would help explain and communicate issues facing your neighbors? What specific data can be collected, shared in OpenStreetMap, and extracted for a dynamic growing picture? Modeling after CoffeeDex and OpenTrails, define needed data, build a collection interface, collect some data, and present.
In pre-event brainstorming, lots of people had ideas on how to address the needs of the homeless in Tucson. Jump to the project hackpad for more info on specifics. This project will focus on one or part of those ideas and get started!
LEAF (Linking Edible Arizona Forests) is a project that allows the community to get involved with planting, conserving, and using edible trees in Arizona. LEAF on the UA Campus is with the statewide LEAF Network. UA LEAF focuses on harvesting and using fruit from the University of Arizona Campus.
