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.
If your city has transport data OTN can help you put it to good use. Our mapping tools and API will allow you to derive accurate insights from the available information and make the city’s transport system more efficient and therefore more enjoyable for citizens.
34 people voted in the poll for the best app of the Baltic Open (Geo) Data Hackathon 2016. The result, at least in the case of the first three places, is exactly the same as the final decision of the jury that evaluated all 7 applications in Riga during the event.
During the hackathon in Riga OTN team (Pavel Hájek, Dmitrij Kožuch, Agris Šnepsts, Frantisek Kolovsk) was working on the analysis of public bus transport system. The data for such analysis was provided by the Riga City Hall (https://opendata.riga.lv/satiksme.html).
The datasets from Riga Open Data portal that were used by the team included
Calling on all GIS experts, developers and innovators to join the fun and test the newest OTN Hub release. We have added new features and improvements to the map tools and looking forward to your feedback. We have also added new datasets and the modelled traffic intensities for the pilot cities. Check them out and help us build a platform that you really want and need by filling this survey.
