Join us for the first annual Norwalk Hackathon!
We'll hear from data, oceanographic, maritime and environmental experts about Long Island Sound and how communities are interacting with this precious body of water.
This is your chance to get together, meet amazing people and do something about climate change, sea-level rise and the health of Long Island Sound, by joining teams that'll focus on data collection, analysis, sharing and visualization.
Specific challenges will fall into three ares:
1. Data science - this could be data structures, data sharing, data protection, and more
2. Data Visualization - VR and Graphics to represent the huge datasets that Long Island Sound sensors create
3. Data Collection - create sensors and water-borne transmission projects
We'll be hosting this with the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium, with all of their amazing expertise and datasets, in cooperation with other groups involved in the Oceans, Environment and Long Island Sound.
