Today, many apps across platforms (web, android, ios, car) use location (lat,lng) or address as the starting point. But there is no single source of truth for my PoIs shared across various apps. For example, I need to store “HOME” on Google Maps, Uber, Ola, and other apps. If you shift, then you will have to update everywhere. There is no way to sync.

The Bachchao Project hosted the “Data: Public, Private and Beyond” from 12th to 15th May 2023 at Panjim, Goa. It’s an Art on Tech exhibition inspired by The Glass Room. I wanted to go but couldn’t due to personal and work reasons.
I showcased Surveillance in the Bengaluru project to attract more contributors to mapping Surveillance in Bengaluru or other cities.
KIA (Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru) has interesting and valuable data about wait times at various places. They show it on overhead displays in the airport and on their website. Over time, this data can help make decisions. Hence I started saving it. Here is how you can get it.
As you would know, I run IDVC survey project, which collects the prices of idli, vada (vada), dose(dosa), and coffee across Bangalore. It’s an ongoing project. The idea is to map the price over time and across geographies in Bangalore.
Part of that larger plan is also to publish the rates of idli, vada (vada), dose(dosa), and coffee at the end of every year. Since 2022 has ended. I have the stats here.
COVID19 data project has ended as of October 21, 2022. I am not going to update the data anymore. It started on March 15, 2020, with a commit that included data from MOHFW. After 1115 commits and more than two and half years of data collection, it ends. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the project.
I have had a couple of air quality sensors. But none of them have a variety of sensors, AQI calculation, and local open data access. Finally, I found IQAir AirVisualPro, which suits my requirement like a glove.
