Participants in the Data City|Data Nation 'Mobility' challenge can access data from more than 15 partnering companies and agencies from the private and public sector, in addition to open-source data available on the Internet. The companies include Ford, Dairy Farm, the National Environment Agency, the Land Transport Authority, among others.
Each participating organization has a platform which lists all the datasets available for download. APIs to access the data are available through the site's website once participants register for the challenge online.
By providing a financial incentive for winners who produce the most significant insights possible through their data analysis, public and private institutions are able to encourage greater learnings on "how we move, what we do and their implications." This knowledge can be used to improve infrastructure and transport policy, and produce important insights into public mobility.
