Open Data Competition

Open and public data from the government and University allows people to take information, link it together and use it to try and make the world a more open and understandable place.

As part of the Open Data Service the University of Southampton is running a competition to encourage you to submit ideas, or full blown applications, that use all this data in a useful way.
Anyone can submit an idea – the more the better! Prizes will be awarded by the distinguished judging panel for ideas and full-blow apps.
