The goal of the challenge is to develop an analytical map of traffic accidents in Czechia using GLayer, a tool for interactive visualisation of big & complex multidimensional spatial data through linked views. GLayer, is an innovative GPU computing tool designed for compute-intensive jobs. It’s parallel architecture delivers high computing performance. GLayer includes a geo-enabled database with a rendering option that is able to store, query and render billions of records. GLayer supports SQL-like queries and provides graphical output of aggregated data such as heatmaps (point or line-based).
InnoConnect will provide the applicant with admin access to the GLayer configuration dashboard through which the analytical map project will be configured (only basic coding skills required).
The official traffic accident data provided by the Police (source) might be either processed by the applicant independently and connected to the GLayer backend via PostGIS or ClikHouse connectors (support will be provided) or a pre-processed data can be provided by InnoConnect.
***The registration for this challenge opens on 1st April***
