its / db mobility hackathon 2017 / by Achim Tack


Our team consisting of four civity analyst took part in the DB / ITS Hackathon in Hamburg on Friday / Saturday and won the first place quite unexpectedly…

On a hackathon, a programming project / data analysis has to be developed from the idea to the prototype within 24 hours. We opted for the relatively current topic of “storm susceptibility of the rail infrastructure due to falling trees”. We used a combination of different methods and open datasets to create static and interactive maps to identify hot-spots within the German rail system in general and the Hamburg system in particular.
