Published on

This talk, held at the COST ENERGIC Working Group 3 Workshop, May 26, 2014, presents some example use cases for crowdsourced spatial data, highlights some barriers for adoption in industry and the public sector and finishes in more general terms with topics that would be of interest and an outlook on developments in conjunction with the concept of opening up (public administration's) data.

  9. 9. What would be of interest? In general, topics where:  no (or bad) official data exists  said data is prohibitively expensive  data has to be comparable across borders  we are interested in informality  (…) COST ENERGIC WG3 Workshop on VGI and UGC 9 CC-BY Tim Parkinson
  10. 10. What would be of interest? Examples:  Movement data  Mode of transport  Metrics  Socio-demography  Purpose, goal  Pooled near-realtime data  Event detection, e.g. damage assessment wrt insurance claims  Emergency operations COST ENERGIC WG3 Workshop on VGI and UGC 10
  11. 11. Maybe a «Trojan horse» for VGI/UGC?  Administrations familiarise themselves with the «open» movement  OGD is not perfect  triggers feedback and interaction between stakeholders … and OGD? COST ENERGIC WG3 Workshop on VGI and UGC 11 OGD VGI UGC
