First prize: UniversiDATA-Lab
The first prize has been to UniversiData-Lab, a public portal for the advanced analysis, and automatic datasets issued by the universities. This is a complementary project
: while the objective of UniversiDATA is to facilitate access to university data sets high quality and formats and standard criteria, the objective of UniversiDATA-Lab is placing value on these datasets, carrying out tests advanced automatic and, taking advantage of the homogeneity of content.
UniversiDATA-Lab offers a catalogue of applications created thanks to the application of advanced techniques of analysis and visualization, carried out in R. in the language online meeting showed the analysis of urban displacement, the analysis of CO2 generated by displacement of pupils and the analysis of variances in the various branches at university.
Such analyses can be essential to give help universities to take decisions relating to the administration and management, with great benefits in the environment, economy and society.
Second prize: Project
the winner of the second prize, is an online service where any user can sign up and start creating MIPs
(Marked Information Picture)
is a medium of information that consists of a series of interactive layers on static images that facilitate the retention of information and identification of elements.
The prototype includes a converter in
open database GeoJSON
the format required for the development of interactive atlases. In turn, also provides a public cloud MIPs
freely accessible for consultations, studies or independent learning.
You can create teachers
quickly and easily, weaving manually regions of interest on any imported image via the web. A more enjoyable to educate and to attract the attention of the student body.
Third prize EducaWood
EducaWood is a web portal socio-semántico that allows you to explore the forest information of a zone of spain and enrich it with annotations trees. Its aim is to promote environmental learning, one of the main aspects of “
Education for sustainable development goals
the UNESCO, and which forms part of the
the spanish government.
Thanks to the use of EducaWood, teachers can propose activities that students are so online or face (through virtual visits to the field). In the internship, students visit natural areas and annotations of Trees are, as locating and identifying species, measures, microhábitats, fotos, etc. These annotations become available throughout the community as open access information, thus making use of remote application. This data is enriched, in addition to other sources such as
Spanish Forest map
, National Forest Inventory
Educawood helps students to learn more about their environment, while being portrayed the taking of ecological awareness.
