NESTA launches Housing Open Data Challenge - @odchallenges

UPDATE: All the teams and more analysis here

Read more on how to take part here:

Just to prompt people who might be interested, there's a ton of data that currently hasn't been 'exploited':

- triangulate data sets to find empty homes

- planning permission - map which properties have been granted, but not completed their works - maybe even create an algorithm, in tandem with £/sqft to highlight which planning permissions are worth the most profit

- which agents perform better on a £/sqft basis

- crowdsource the availabilty of properties listed on Rightmove - mark which properties have 'just gone' and save others from having to call up and receive the same (frustrating) response
