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.


OTN Supported MedHack a Success

On 13-15 July 2016 OTN participated in MedHackathon event that was organised by the European Regional Framework for Co-operation and the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department (CEID) of the University of Patras. The Patras-based event comprised a conference and a hackathon and had as its main focus Open Data and its potential to facilitate the creation of new ideas, projects and services. 

OTN Supports Another Riga Hackathon

OTN is proudly supporting another hackathon event in Latvia focused on Quantified Self, Wearables, Fitness and Health.
