The Challenge, created by Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and DataBay partners, invited participants to create data-driven applications to increase public engagement and aid in Chesapeake Bay restoration. During the weekend, the Challenge brought participants together with prominent environmental “futurists” who described some of the Chesapeake Bay’s challenges and needs. In addition, environmental scientists from SERC, the Maryland Department of the Environment and the EPA were on hand to offer their expertise. Participants worked on their own ideas or one of the challenges posted by our partners. They had access to a broad variety of robust data about the Chesapeake Bay, including decades of water samples from hundreds of locations describing everything from what fish to eat, to where to swim safely and what water bodies are under pollution restrictions.
