The enviroCar Newsletter provides information about current developments and activities. It is published on a regular basis.
The enviroCar project allows users to collect and share their driving statistics via an OBD sensor coupled with an Android app. A new SPA (Single Page Application) is now available online (http://pilot.52north.org/envirocar-ng/) as an amendment to the enviroCar project. It builds upon work done by Google’s Summer of Code student Naveen Jafer (please find a summary of his work on enviroCar visual analytcs here). Users are invited to test the SPA and to fill out a feedback form regarding issues or to share ideas. more >
Linked Open Data (LOD) is a set of best practices for publishing raw data on the Web. It makes your data highly structured and very easy to incorporate with the other datasets.
The enviroCar platform has a large and varied amount of data describing different entities and can currently be served as Linked Open Data with a detailed API reference here. There are many entities involved, such as cars, people, speed, dates and so on. If these entities are served as Linked Open Data, they can be very easily connected to datasets which describe them, such as DBpedia.
