Citizen Election Portal - The Missing Information Link in Nepal

Many of us in Nepal, mostly urbanites, don't know our constituency. It's a pity, but understandable. There's no easily available data. Election Commission of Nepal doesn't seem to have easy to find information. Even if you managed to find those information, those will be in some pdf.

Opendata Mini-hackathon on Election achieved its mini objectives

Opendata Mini Hackathon on Election was indeed a mini one with around 20 participants and 5 projects on Election data. The hackathon projects made use of available dataset in the election website. There were very few data in the site and those listed were also in pdfs, and in different kind of encoding. One of the interesting datasets is on Election Results of CA Election 2064 http://www.election.gov.np/reports/CAResults/reportBody.php.

Open Nepal Hackathon saw 75 participants and 19 ideas

How do you choose the best from the best? I am sure judges had really hard time to select the best ones from the pool of 19 unique projects. However there has to be the winners at the end. The first prize of OpenNepal Hackathon of Rs. 30000 went to "Aid Flow Data Analysis and Visualization" which visualizes the aid data in the world map, showing the flow of money from donors to recipient countries. Similarly Bloodplus bagged the second award with cash prize of Rs. 20000.
