Once again, the NASA International Space Apps Challenge allowed participants to use the .earth web domain to showcase their projects.
In case you are not familiar with the NASA International Space Apps Challenge, it is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, and others in cities around the world. Participants engage with NASA’s free and open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space.
During a period of 48 hours, participants from around the world created virtual teams and used Earth observation data to develop solutions to issues our world is facing.
NASA recently announced the winners of the challenge. While the .earth domain users did not make it to the winner’s list, they created some very innovative submissions that are worthy of spotlighting.
