Amsterdam Open Data Program winner of World Smart Cities Awards 2012
DIVV, the city’s department for Infrastructure, Traffic and Transportation wishes to stimulate innovation of products and services in the field of mobility.
Since March 2012, DIVV has made available all its data on traffic and transportation to interested parties. Data about parking (tariffs, availability, time), taxi stands, cycle paths, stops for touringcars are public now. Next to this, real time information is given on traffic jams on main roads around the city.
Developers and entrepreneurs can use open data to build applications for e.g. cyclists, car- and busdrivers. Examples are Parkshark (Glimworm) and Bike Like a Local.
The money prize of 15.000 Euro was handed over to the Dutch city at the World Smart Cities Forum in Barcelona last November.
