Open Data Revolution of the Deutsche Bahn (German Railways)

Deutsche Bahn (German Railways), one of the world-leading passenger and logistics company is long-known to be very closed and conservative. Therefore, for many it was a complete surprize when Deutsche Bahn has announced the DB Open Data Portal in Novemeber 2015 and started publishing datasets under very permissive Creative Commons licenses. These datasets include geodata like stops, stations, complete railway track network and many others, growing almost weekly. DB Open Data is now extended by DB Open APIs like timetable of the long-distance trains. In this talk, we tell the story behind DB Open Data. About our challenges and failures, our successes and lessons learned on the way to become more open, to enable and to be enabled by the community. We show projects which were already implemented using our Open Data and point out to boundaries we still have to break.

OpenSky Network - Crowdsourced and Open Air Traffic Surveillance Network

The OpenSky Network is a community-based receiver network which continuously collects air traffic surveillance data. Unlike other systems, OpenSky keeps the collected data forever and makes it available to researchers from different fields. With almost 50 billion ADS-B messages collected so far, the OpenSky Network exhibits the largest air traffic surveillance dataset of its kind in the world. In this talk, we explain how the OpenSky Network functions, what you can do with our data and how you can participate. We will show how you can easily build an ADS-B base station under 100 Euro. Composed from the cheap off-the-shelf components, this station will be still powerful enough to "see" planes in the radius of up to 150km.
