Hier wil ik wonen! A Dutch open data application

The web application allows users to compare their living environment to that of others in the Netherlands

Hier wil ik wonen! is a Dutch application that allows users to compare their own living environment with other places. More specifically, users can calculate a total score for a specific address by filtering which indicators are important to them such as comfort, health, safety, affordability and accessibility, and rating these between 1 and 100. The results can then be compared to the scores of other addresses.

The application uses open governmental data from various sources such as the Department of Waterways and Public Works, the Dutch Weather Institute and the National Database for Road Traffic Data, that provides data about noise generated by traffic.

Hier wil ik wonen! is one of the over 450 use cases published on the European Data Portal. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge about different applications and websites using open data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
