Sneak Peek at the Challenges

The Cologne GDST Seafood Trackathon just 2 weeks away, here is a sneak peek at some of the challenges that we will be addressing:

  • TUNA VESSEL RFMO AND IMO VERIFICATION: App for corroborating tuna vessels’ identity as well as the time and locations of fishing
  • EPCIS DATA SANITISER: An application for converting EPCIS events into sanitized or truncated data structures for testing purposes
  • KDE (CBV) CONFORMITY TOOL: A portal for testing the CBV/KDE conformity and completeness of test EPCIS events
  • EXTRA HARVEST MARKETPLACE: A marketplace for fishers & farmers to advertise portions of their harvest directly to consumers which was undesired by commercial buyers
  • PATH TO MARKET OPTIMIZER: A way of visualizing the route that seafood products take from EPCIS events to calculate more optimal routes in distance and time.
  • FISHERIES APP SUPPORT: A mechanism for in-app technical support to guide fishers utilizing fisheries data collection apps
  • CATCH AREA TOKENIZATION: A way of demonstrating proof that GPS coordinates from a fishing trip were published to a government validator and an indelible indication whether the validator scrutinized the coordinates
