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.
