We had an idea for a real time poetic air quality app. Something like a geiger-counter, but with more shiny colors!). Our developer @Atticweb investigated the (real time) air quality datasets and concluded there aren't enough datapoints to give a functional idea of the current quality on a specific location in most of The Netherlands. So we ended up with a few sketches. (Still like the idea though)
Another one would be a app about dykes. (Een dijk van een app) Something with plotting all structures that keeps water away on a map with a nearby function. It would be awesome to visualize how much water it actually keeps away. We found some (questionably open) data with the constructions which happened to be very inaccurate and incomplete.
One more concept was one with a little less sustainable approach. The idea is to get the data together about the homing situation of gemeentes. How many homes are in each of the sectors (social rental, peculiar rental(pun intended), buying), how many are added or withdrawn and what are the consequences of this on pricing. This is mostly a personal annoyance of myself and I believe this information should be shown together. (As someone who’s forced on the commercial rental market and spending way too much money on a little apartment)
At the moment we’re a little stuck with either the data or the development. So if any developers feel like collaborating :)…
ps. sorry for wall of text.

What about sampling one of the real-time (=hourly) maps http://www.atlasleefomgeving.nl/kijken?x=122929&y=487207&zoom=6&l=4183&al=4183&bl=2&mapLayout=1&location=false&library=false@OpenStateEU? You can e.g. create a 500 x 500 m grid and use it to fuel your geiger-counter app. I can help you with the grid + data extraction if you want.

Which dataset did you find? Deltares has a dataset called
Bescherming tegen overstroming that show the dykes. I don't know if it contains all of them and how old the set is. I can upload it do data.openstate.eu if you want?

You can combine it with e.g. Used heat per household dataset http://www.nationaleenergieatlas.nl/kaarten;jsessionid=D1DCB7DFD99A41CB23439D014291E7E4?x=160000&y=450000&zoom=4&l=4308&al=4308&bl=1&mapLayout=1&location=true&library=false to give it a more "sustainable" spin.
