Fresh data is the best! This category is about creating concepts that access automatically refreshed data. Data used must be automatically refreshed through an API, data service, web-service or even a regular FTP data refresh. Your concept must include a regular refresh of data to update content. This is your opportunity to show how data that is current and refreshed can provide a more valuable and reliable community service.
