After Citadel on the Move our friends form Corve are now leading a new project around open data and transport - OpenTransportNet
OpenTransportNet is an EU funded project and currently in development phase.
It's designed to revolutionise the way transport related services are created across Europe. By bringing together open geo-spatial data within City Data Hubs and enabling it to be viewed in new easy to understand ways, OpenTransportNet will enable:
- Anyone to have fun with data, by viewing data mash-up's in maps and graphs and be able to use and embed these maps in their own websites
- Public Sector users to gain insights from linking and visualising different data sets and be able to make better public service decisions based on the findings
- Businesses and entrepreneurs to use the data to enhance existing services and build new transport-related services
- The wider open community to benefit from the project outputs and findings to advance geospatial data standards such as INSPIRE
You can find more info on the website http://www.opentransportnet.eu
As part of the project we have developed a short 5 minute questionnaire (available in 3 languages) to survey transport managers about their use of geospatial information and I kindly ask either yourself or - if not relevant to you - one of your colleagues to complete. We are also in need of transport contacts in municipalities and any contact you can share would be very much appreciated.
