A World of Open Data

Nowadays, people are asking eagerly for Open Data and Open Government in order to gain access to unmediated facts and knowledge. Open data is, in fact, not a new idea. It is a way to share raw data with the public and put no limitations on its application. Open Government is a similar concept, encouraging the wide dissemination of government information. Integrating different kinds of Open Data often generates greater value.

For example, integrating the space-time distribution of a newly emerging disease and international airline routes may help us to find out how the disease diffuses and even to make predictions about its future diffusion.

With SuperGIS Server, users are able to integrate geo-located Open Data and build an Open Data map platform. By doing this, for example, a government can open its data to the public and become an Open Government. And the citizens can utilize the map platform to gain an overview of the city, like traffic information, house prices, disease distributions, and so on. SuperGIS Server JavaScript API gives users the ability to integrate different kinds of GIS Open data, including CSV, shapefiles, OGC services, KML, and GeoJSON. Get a SuperGIS Server and get ready for the world of Open Data.

A webinar will be held by Supergeo by the end of this month, showing how you can benefit from SuperGIS Server and Open Data. Contact us today to get a 1 month free trial of SuperGIS Server 3.2 and embrace the infinite possibilities of Open Data. Contact us at: staff@supergeo.com.tw.
