About this hacknight
Continuing our Beyond Transparency series, we will dive into NYC's Land Use databases. For this night, we are partnering with the Furman Center at NYU. For this hacknight, we will have several subject matter experts who will be around to hear your ideas and talk about their ideas.
About Beyond Transparency
For the month of Jan and Feb, BetaNYC is doubling down its advocacy investment in open data. We are focusing on building tools for City Council Members, their staff, and Community Boards. For these weeks, we are looking at four data realms and building apps on top of that data: Crime and Public Safety, Schools and Transportation, Land Use, and NYC 311 data. These nights will feed into a two day hackathon (22/23 Feb), Code Across NYC.
