With over $35,000 in prizes, NASA, in partnership with USGS, will host the Climate Resilience Data Challenge — an effort to spur data innovation in support of resilience in communities and ecosystems. Through the NASA Tournament Lab hosted on topcoder, the Challenge will kick-off on December 15 and last for three months, starting with an ideation stage for data-driven application pitches, followed by storyboarding and prototyping of concepts with the greatest potential. The winning ideas can one day be implemented on the web and will inform the development of earth science web services.
