In this talk, I will introduce the future technical and social impact of open data on the open platform. Nowadays, web technology, whose process of standardization is open and independent of vendors, has evolved into an application platform on various devices such as PC, mobile and embedded devices. Developers of web-standards and web-based application are now trying to integrate a map technology tightly into the web standards for the future mobile web-based applications. As an organizer of a workshop aiming to discuss the future web-based map technology, I will introduce emerging technology and discussion in this area. At the workshop I held in Tokyo, Japan in 2012, many developers and researchers in various communities such as OpenStreetMap, FOSS4G, HTML5, and Linked OpenData gathered and had an enthusiastic discussion. I will summarize the discussion and future perspective at the workshop in my talk in order to discuss future technical and social possibility of OpenStreetMap on web-based open platform.
