I added another T-Shirt to my collection today  This time it was for being part of Hack NEO (w, t).

HackNEO

Hack NEO was a two day event June 1st and 2nd as part of the National Day of Civic Hacking.  The event consisted of two Data Challenges using open data.  The two challenges were map the Summit County Metro Parks and a project working with Census data to aid with planning.

Code for Summit County

The event in Akron was organized by Code for Summit County (w, mu).  Persa Zula (w, t) keeping us fed and motivated towards our goals during the event.

What I did

I was involved with the group that was working on modifying the Cuyahoga County Metro Pack GIS application. While other worked with the bits to get a version of the application running. A small team of us used the Quantum GIS (w) to map entry points for various trails and use areas in Summit County.

It was great to see the energy of everyone who was involved with the event.
