Apps Built From Open Data Hub Datasets

This section features a list of applications–and their descriptions–built using the Domains and Datasets that the Open Data Hub team makes available.

Applications are grouped according to their status in three categories:

  • Production status. These applications are already used in production environment.
  • Development status, aka beta stage, shown by the This application is in beta stage 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 This application is in alpha stage 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.
