The NASA International Space Apps Challenge is the world’s largest annual hackathon. And we’re happy to announce that we’ll be supporting its participants once again this year!

The NASA International Space Apps Challenge is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, and technologists. Since 2012, it has taken place each October in various cities around the world. It offers the teams the chance to engage NASA and its partners’ open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space.

Over the course of two days, participants join hundreds of in-person and virtual local events to solve challenges submitted by NASA experts. This year’s challenge will focus on Earth and space science, technology, and exploration. After the hackathon, project submissions are judged by space agency experts and winners are selected for one of 10 Global Awards.

In the past 10 years, 180,000+ registrants from 150+ countries/territories participated in the hackathon.

This year marks the 3rd time Meteomatics is proudly supporting this hackathon by giving participants free access to our Weather API for the duration of the event.

In the 2020 and 2021 editions, we saw a huge interest in our Weather API. We provided access to dozens of teams who used our data, alongside other Earth observation data sets from providers – including NASA, European Space Agency (ESA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), and the National Center for Space Studies (CNES) – to build insights and propose solutions to the hackathon challenges.

We received tons of positive feedback from participants who found our Weather API easy to use and integrate with other data sets at both a global and local level, helping them analyze and understand the interplay between weather and earth systems in a very short period of time (over a weekend)!

At Meteomatics we believe in supporting causes that use our weather and climate data for good, and we’re very excited about this continued partnership with NASA. We can’t wait to see the proposed solutions to this year’s challenges, and be once again amazed by the creative ways in which our data can be used to solve global problems.
