Transportation Camp and Govathon

This weekend marks the 9th Transportation Camp, an “unconference” that has taken place in half a dozen North American cities, where attendees will propose the conference sessions on Saturday morning and collaborate throughout the day. Transportation Camp will be paired with the 3rd Atlanta Govathan, a hackathon created by the City of Atlanta, Invest Atlanta, and Startup Atlanta which brings folks together to help solve problems affecting our government and community through creating everything from websites and mobile apps to designing other types of innovative products and services. According to the event developers the result of the weekend will be “a series of tangible, technology-based solutions to our most pressing transportation challenges.”

Hacking to improve biking in Atlanta

As part of Govathon the ABC’s 2009-2013 bike count data—both manual and pneumatic tube—will be available. We are seeking innovative ways to process, interpret, and present the data. What kinds of questions can we answer with the data? What is the state of biking in Atlanta today? How can the bike count data be paired with census data or American Community Survey data? How should the data be mapped? How should data be collected in the future? 

Join us!

So put on your thinking (and collaboration) caps and join us this weekend! More information can be found at the Transportation Camp and Govathon registration website. The event is being hosted in the Clough Building on the Georgia Tech Campus and begins at 8:30am on Saturday with breakfast.
