Welcome to the Amsterdam Edition of the International Space Apps Challenge!
Sponsored by NASA, the International Space Apps Challenge is a two-day event (April 20-21, 2013) during which citizens from around the world will work together to address current challenges relevant to both space exploration and social needs. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing open-source solutions to global challenges. Mass collaboration is key to creating and discovering state-of-the-art technology.
Teams of technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, software developers, and students will compete and collaborate across the world, utilizing publicly available data to design innovative solutions for global challenges in software development, science platforms, sensors, and data visualization.
Come join us during the weekend of 20-21 of April! We will have a lot of fun, in a pretty builiding in the center of Amsterdam, working with other people around the world aiming to solve some of those challenges. Participation is free, and food, drinks and all needed infrastructure will be provided (bring your notebook)!

Het internationale Space APP Challange, gesponsoord door de NASA is een tweedaags event dat zal plaatsvinden in Amsterdam op 20 en 21 april aanstaande.
Gedurende dit event zullen mensen vanover de hele wereld tegelijkertijd samenwerken aan uitdagingen gerelateerd aan ‘space exploration’ en ‘social needs’.
Het evenement omarmt collaboratieve probleemoplossing met als doel het produceren van open-source oplossingen naar wereldwijde uitdagingen. Samenwerking in grote wereldwijde teams is de sleutel tot het creeren en ontdekken van state-of-the-art-technologie.
Teams van technologen, wetenschappers, ontwerpers, artiesten, leraren, entrepreneurs, software developers en studenten van over de hele wereld zullen strijden en samenwerken, gebruik makend van algemeen beschikbara data om innovatieve oplossingen voor wereldwijde uitdagingen in software design, science platforms, meetsystemen en data visualisatie te ontwerpen.
Doe mee aan dit unieke event op 20 - 21 April! In een leuk kantoor in het centrum van Amsterdam gaan we samen met mensen vanover de hele wereld aan deze uitdagingen werken. Deelname is gratis, voor eten en drinken wordt gezorgd. Tevens is de nodige infrastructure aanwezig. Neem alleen je notebook mee!

Perpetuality - Renewable Energy Explorer - "gamified"Project Members from this location
Perpetuality is a "Renewable Energy Explorer"-game.
14 people from Netherlands, Japan and Spain cooperated and quickly formed teams: one group was devoted to gathering various spatial datasets and making these accessible for the others, a civil engineer created the necessary models, the... Visit Project
Lovable Wearable DataProject Members from this location
There are so many exoplanets discovered in the last years (around 2700 at the moment). These planets must really feel lonely after all this time without any company of really intelligent people like we are :-) So for this challenge we propose a garment that shows the dat... Visit Project

Moonopoly, a turn-based strategy game simulating a self-sufficient, profitable moon industry.
Three milestones to pursue:
- Make profit by exporting to other space industries, use it to import ... Visit Project
PDS analysis frameworkProject Members from this location
The initial aim is to develop a framework that allows for storing the original formats into a data structure that allows searching, analysis and further aggregation of data.
We will design PoC tools to visualize data and convert it to information. From here, we will see if we can find... Visit Project
