Put Your City on the Map!
OpenTransportNet is an exciting new project 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
OpenTransportNet is currently in a development phase. The Consortium supports an open innovation culture and as such would love to hear from anyone interested in supporting our aims in any way.

Did you know that the transport sector employs 17 million people in Europe and provide services to around 500 million people in EU28? As travelling became a part of our daily lives, transport grew to be one of the most significant segments of the EU economy eager to benefit from the research and innovation solutions.
