As a followup to an earlier post this month, the DLA wants to share that the team behind the parking application, intended to help make parking easier in downtown Raleigh, has won the NC DataPalooza competition.

With a small sum of prize money, the team is planning to continue with working on the prototype and preparing for launch over the next few months.

The team is very motivated about the potential impact it may have on our downtown. We’re also very excited that our application is applicable in many other urban areas and we’re looking into expanding it outside of the triangle.

For more about the application, DLA member Leo Suarez has written about it on his blog.
