Cities & Open Data: the Value of Mobile Transit App Development

Cities & Open Data: the Value of Mobile Transit App Development | bancoideas | Scoop.it

It's time for cities to open their data to developers who can turn that underutilized information into useful mobile applications.

 

Municipalities worldwide are opening data to developers who provide free or inexpensive apps for consumers, businesses, and governments. Open data is a win for everyone.

Transit applications are among the most popular municipal apps- anyone who uses public transportation appreciates seeing schedules, especially in real-time. The more modern the transit system, the more likely it will be able to gather real-time location data.


Apps are typically based on available transit data and illustrate how municipalities are increasingly accepting the open data movement. For example, last year, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed a law requiring city agencies to place much of their numerical data into easily accessible formats by 2018.

Portland, Ore., has embraced open data and has posted a catalogue of municipal apps. "The Catalog is unique because it includes public datasets from a wide array of local government jurisdictions," the government says on its website. "It is the only inter-jurisdictional repository of local public data of its kind in the United States, at least as far as we know."
