TransportationCamp New England 2014 is collaborating with the 37 Billion Mile Data Challenge. This is a month-long challenge to explore anonymous vehicle-use data and discover insights that can help the Commonwealth build a model, estimated mileage, fuel efficiency of every registered vehicle in MA, as well as vehicles per household and green house gas emissions.
Participants are encouraged to submit data-driven visualizations, infographics, maps, web tools to answer driving questions about transportation, energy, and land use. The most compelling entries will receive cash prizes, Zipcar memberships, Hubway memberships, pre-loaded Charlie Cards, and more. The submission period closes April 19,2014 and winners announced by May 1st.
