We’re on track in the Data Supercluster for an exciting Expo event. Check out the details at the NIST GCTC Expo web site and sign up. Its free to attend, but you must register.
As we deep-dive global cities working to create value from data, we’re sharing city data portals among the Data Supercluster membership. Community leaders and other stakeholders may find key metrics to refine products, form Action Clusters, rally and reach out to Citizens.
In America, 40% of food is wasted. This is an astounding number. The Data Supercluster is examining how today’s waste stream management build environment might share data relevant to food waste. Is enough data available but hidden today? Can inferences from grocery and restaurant purchases drive data models that support food waste metrology?
A call for an Action Cluster to investigate methods to measure food waste, take action to mitigate food waste and measure results will be announced soon. To create your own Action Cluster in the Data Supercluster, use the NIST GCTC Action Cluster worksheet/application form.
WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the the eyes of chef-heroes like Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system.

Thingsboard is a relatively new open-source IoT platform for data collection, processing, visualization, and device management. You can deploy it in the cloud or on-premises.
As one of Thingsboard authors, I can say that the main project idea is:
- Simple yet powerful API for device connectivity.
- Rich set of functionality.
- Horizontal scalability and fault-tolerance in cluster mode.
- Thingsboard IoT Gateway enables connectivity for legacy and existing IoT devices

The NIST GCTC Data Supercluster group is working to advance the use of urban data by developing and sharing best practices and produce blueprints for the design, deployment and governance of urban data platforms and data exchanges and governance and , as well as deployed proofs by facilitating sharing collaboration among membership teams and stakeholders further practical application of civic data.
The Data Supercluster addresses critical issues on data platforms. Stakeholders have identified licensing, cyber-security, encouraging innovation, understanding use-cases and proofs of concepts as importantpriority areas of study and sharing. This build off of a In 2017 NISt convening with, the cities of Kansas City, Missouri and Bellevue, Washington teamed withand 20 other cities and several corporate partners to focusdiscuss on Data urban data, data visualization and data hosting platforms.
In early 2018, these efforts efforts of that area, and a new were formalized into a new Data Governance and Exchange Superclustereffort were merged. The scope of the Data Supercluster recently has expanded to embraced work being done at the University of Southern California, City of Coral Gables among others.
The SuperCluster is currently documenting the common experiences among Action Clusters that span Transportation, Public Safety, Utility, Wireless, Ag and Rural, and Education through this website, the Data Supercluster Google Group, face to face and online meetings.
The Data supercluster is open to all stakeholders in GCTC Smart City projects. Innovation using Open Data and networking often experience friction in deployment and operation.

Nine years ago, mapping in Haiti after the natural disaster earthquake.
A visualisation of the response to the earthquake by the OpenStreetMap community. Within 12 hours the white flashes indicate edits to the map (generally by tracing satellite/aerial photography). Over the following days a large number of additions to the map are made with many roads (green primary, red secondary) added.
The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is responsible for investigating reportable marine casualties, accidents, and serious marine incidents. The relevant mission statement and specific regulations can be found on the USCG Investigations Division homepage. After an incident has been reported, it is entered into a national database of all marine casualty and pollution incidents.
For all Open Data geeks out there, we set up a comprehensive list of all open data portals around the world. Check it out!
