As Hyper Island students we were faced with the challenge of using open data to form a platform that would be beneficial for Stockholm citizens daily life. SLAPP allows users to visualize the location of Stockholms Lokaltrafiks (SL) ticket controllers in real time by collecting data from the twitter feed @SLbiljett, which also means it is depending on reports tweeted to this account.
