Measuring Amsterdam event 2015
On the 16th of October, Measuring Amsterdam took place for the second time. During this year's Measuring Amsterdam event, ideas were gathered to improve the Knowledge mile. Participants of the event were asked to participate in a data experiment in which they used a tool to gather ideas on improving the Knowledge mile. Besides the data experiment there were keynotes on the Smart City and Smart Citizens.

With Measuring Amsterdam we developed a method for participatory open data collection through an web-application. This method can be used by citizens to gather data with their own mobile phone and provide a first citizen empowerment tool for these citizens. By publishing the collected data as open data, developers can create visualizations or applications to provide new insights.
