With support from the NASA Europa Challenge, GODAN is pleased to announce the launch of a Local Farming Challenge! We want to bring together researchers and students to find solutions for local farming in growing cities, using open agriculture and nutrition data. Participants must use some aspect of the OpenCitySmart Design and use NASA’s open source virtual globe technology, WebWorldWind as a source of open data. Ideas may include ways for optimally linking local farming communities directly with potential customers, tools for visualising spatio-temporal aspects of local farming, tools for helping reducing wastage (for example linking with local food banks), and any number of solutions for helping our goal of Zero Hunger.
COMING SOON! A free e-learning programme on open data is going to help strengthen the capacity of data producers and data consumers to manage and use open data in agriculture and nutrition. This course is developed as part of the capacity development activities within the GODAN Action project and will start in autumn 2017.Read more
