Now Accepting Entries: U.S. DOT’s Data Innovation Challenge

Posted by Joe Gentle on Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

The U.S. Department of Transportation is now accepting entries for their Data Innovation Challenge through April 30, 2014. The challenge is to “create a tool to address systemic challenges by accessing publicly available federal and/or local DOT datasets.” Entrants can choose to create a range of tools, from mobile apps to infographics–the only restriction is that DOT’s publicly available data must be at the core of the project.

Visit for more about the contest, including official rules and important dates.
