You will be submitting a project using the data provided to produce a solution or illustration for an idea relating to the theme of Smart Cities and Transportation.


There are no restrictions on your methods, applications used, project format, or creativity. We want you to think outside the box and design something you can be proud of.

Here are some suggested outputs for your project:


  • Visualizations
