GLOS announces challenge to commemorate 10 year anniversary

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The Great Lakes Observing system (GLOS) is offering $9,500 in prizes to people who develop interesting uses for Great Lakes data. The non-profit data hub recently announced a challenge to commemorate its ten year anniversary. Challengers must make use of at least one publicly available data set to help the Great Lakes region.

The final products could be as diverse as apps that show swimmers and boaters wave heights and currents, help plan a visit to the beach, or provide a map revealing changes in algal blooms over time.

To enter, register with GLOS. You have until August 15 to submit a written description, directions for use and a quick YouTube demonstration of your product. The requirements are here.

GLOS is a Regional Association in support of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®).
