Inspirational Uses

We know that as more and more datasets are uploaded to the datastore the possibility for creative uses like visualisations and apps increases. We want to make sure that everyone knows about the good things that happen when government releases its data.

So if you have done something with our data that you would like us to shout about please let us know by emailing and we will feature it here on the inspirational uses page. Then we can get twittering about it and hopefully encourage more public agencies across London to free their data. The more we can showcase by example the better.

Applications are shown below in descending date order. Click on the title to view the full details and to vote or comment on the use.
