The DataSF App Showcase is a collection of applications that have been developed and built by individuals and organizations using datasets published by the City & County of San Francisco. The apps in this showcase are a tangible result from individuals & organizations having open access to city data.
There are different data categories such as Crime, Dining, Environment, Local, Maps, News, Politics &Transportation to create an app. In the DataSF App Showcase you can fine different example, but one case that I’m really interesting is SF Solar Map because this app lets residents view buildings that are equipped with solar power and read case studies on installed systems. Users also can type their address into the Solar Map site to get an analysis of how much solar power or solar water heating they could produce on their roof, and provides links to information on technologies and financial incentives available.

Certainly, DataSF App Showcase is a good example of what we should do with the data available in the network. If you are interesting to build an app, click here
