(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and OpenGov Hub will host civic hackers, transportation experts, urban planners, academics and advocates at the first-of-its-kind Vision Zero Hackathon Saturday, February 13, 2016. During the event, participants will brainstorm and code their way to fresh insights about transportation safety, using newly released open data on crashes and enforcement.
The in-person Hackathon will convene groups to perform further analysis and showcase new data visualizations, apps, and GIS analysis. The event aims to increase dialog about transportation safety policy and services, as well as provide an opportunity for hacking to offer new perspectives for using safety data.
The District will publish three new data sets, containing records from 2010 to 2014:
• Crash Data
• Moving Violations
