Apps built from Open Data Hub datasets
This section features a list of applications–and their
descriptions–built using the Datasets that the Open Data Hub team
Applications are grouped according to their status in three categories:
Production status. These applications are already used in production
Development status, aka beta stage, shown by the
badge. Application in beta stage are developed actively and might
already be suitable for a production environment.
Experimental status, aka alpha stage, shown by the
badge. Applications falling in this category are in the early stage
of development, and might be for example, a proof of concept or the
outcome of a hackathon. They might not be maintained or developed
further and should not be considered mature enough to be deployed in
a production environment.
If you are developing one application with the data provided by
datasets of the Open Data Hub project, send an email with a short description,
an email contact and its status and we’ll add it to the list.
