The official launch of Manchester-I, Manchester’s portal for city-related data, was held on the 29th November at the Manchester Central Library. There was a good turnout of data professionals from across the Manchester Triangulum partner organisations, as well as the City. Attendees were invited to explore the system to understand the datasets available.
Triangulum partner Clicks and Links also demonstrated the virtual reality possibilities they may be able to develop for the project. As well as learning more about the potential for virtual reality, attendees were able to put on the headset and enter virtual reality train tunnel!
The Manchester data can be viewed and downloaded at www.manchester-i.com. Manchester will also be hosting a series of ‘Innovation Challenges’ over the course of 2018-19, to enable developers to exploit the data to perform useful functions for the City and our partners.
