email : Webview : EU award for hackers shows potential of open data 2012-06-24


Use the link to learn more about the three award winners of Hack4Europe! 2012 sponsored by Europeana. Websites for the award winning projects provide the opportunity to be updated on project development. “Europeana will today showcase award-winning apps that demonstrate the social and commercial possibilities of open cultural data and its potential to touch everyday lives, at the European Commission’s Digital Agenda Assembly... The three winning finalists were: [1] Poland: Artspace, developed by Agata Dzieka and Marek Sredniawa, promotes access to art in everyday situations. It means the Europeana collections can be made available in public places such as coffee shops, libraries, schools, and hotels. Making use of LCD displays and an online Collection Management System it allows a “Virtual art leasing” service and a highly personalised curation.  [2] Latvia:, developed by Eriks Remess, Maksim Berjoza and Uldis Bojars, makes searching, navigating and sharing Europeana content more fun. Even simple search results are displayed in a highly engaging visual manner which can then easily be used to navigate further or retrieve details about an individual record.  [3] Belgium: Stackathon, developed by Senne Van Der Bogaert, Mehmet Celik and Wouter Aerts, is a mobile phone app that allows you to create personal online guides to art or art critiques. The app allows users to search and select artworks in Europeana and then, using the phone as a recording device, add audio comments to the selected artwork, before sharing online.”
