Apps built from Open Data Hub datasets¶
This section features a list of applications, and some additional useful information about them, built using the Datasets that the Open Data Hub team makes available.
The additional information may include the home page of the app, the contact address of the developers, a description, and the type of the application (mobile app, web page, and so on)..
However, the most important attribute of each project is probably its status, which might be one of these three:
- 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.
- 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.
- Production status. These applications are already used in 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.
Production Stage Apps¶
https://www.suedtirol.info. This portal is the official touristic site of the South Tyrol region. It uses the data extracted from the Datasets in the Tourism Domain to display events in the region of South Tyrol and other useful information to help tourists organise their holiday in South Tyrol.

- https://parking.bz.it. A web site that displays the real-tim parking availability of off-street parking lots in South Tyrol. On mobile devices, it can also show directions from your current position to the chosen parking lot.

- http://bus.bz.it. This web site shows the real-time positions of the buses managed by the public transport operator SASA. Urban or suburban bus lines can be shown, and for each bus can be shown the next few stops and an estimate of the arrival time.
- http://map.clean-roads.eu. One of the CLEAN-ROADS project outcomes, this web site shows real-time data of the meteorological stations that are situated along public streets.
Alpha Stage Apps¶
All the projects listed in this section have been built during various hackathons and must be considered as Experimental.
