Job Offer for Students – Data Collection for Gävle Innovation Arena

The challenge 

A lot of Open Data is available on the Internet today but the question is what we mean with Accessibility and Reliability.

How easily can the data really be accessed and how reliable is Open Data from these sources. 

The challenge is to find Open Data from Public Sources and to check the Availability and Reliability for the data after 

  1. downloading and
  2. accessing using API’s

Sources might be Governmental Authorities, Counties, Municipalities, Non-Government Organizations and Companies. 

Examples: Weather, Railway Platform Information, News, Road Transportation Information, Air Pollution, Ground Pollution, Water Pollution, Water Reservoirs etc

To measure Availability and Reliability Live Testing for both downloading and direct use using API’s must be performed.
API’s and Results must be documented in Gävle Innovation Arena. If subscription is needed, terms for subscriptions should be documented.

50% during 3 months – Preferred
40% during 4 month – Acceptable
