Quick-Start Guide

Thanks for joining the PACT Wayfinding App Challenge. You're officially registered now and we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the challenge.

Submissions are due June 15, 2015 at 5pm ET. Here's how you can get started:

  1. Plan your attack. Review the challenge requirements and Resources page.
  2. Visit Philadelphia's Open Data and Open API Portals for access to property, 311, crime, finance, and even more civic data.
  3. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basics of your submission and save it as a draft today. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together before the deadline.
  4. Optional: Form a team. Thinking about buddying up? Visit the Participants page to find and meet teammates.

We can't wait to see what you'll create. Good luck!


We’re here to help. If you have any questions about the challenge, post on the discussion forum or email and we’ll respond as soon as we can.
