Scalable and Reusable Open Geospatial Data
Start date: Nov 1, 2013,

Open data provided by the public sector constitute a significant opportunity for growth. The Vickery report estimates the benefits of open data reuse for the EU27 economy at 140bn/year. These financial benefits will be materialized through the establishment of a data economy, led by SMEs providing added value services by repurposing open public data.Geospatial data account for an estimated 80% of public sector information and are the most significant category of open data due to their high production, procurement and update costs, as well as their relevance in multiple domains. Despite their importance, they are increasingly difficult to reuse especially in a cross-boundary multilingual context.PublicaMundi will deliver the required methodologies, technologies and software components to leverage geospatial data as first-class citizens in open data catalogues, and deliver reusable software components and tools enabling the development of scalable, responsive, and multimodal value added applications from open geospatial data.
