One year and one day at the Open Transport WG
It’s the 18th of September and 40 open transport experts gather in a small room in a conference center in Geneva (Switzerland). It’s precisely 1 year and 1 day ago that we were gathered in Helsinki to write the Open Transport Data Manifest. In meantime, this manifest has been used in the Italian Parliament, has been presented at several Open Data conferences and has been used to convince smaller transport agencies that this is the right way forward.
This one year has been a quest for problems and potential solutions. During the next year we will focus on a couple of projects we have identified as being the next steps. How we got there will be posted in a couple of blog posts during the next weeks.
- Focus on small helpful tools: stations.io, an open transport data portal and a vocabulary
- Talk, convince, innovate: using the Open Transport Data Manifest and continue working on the Open Transport Data Handbook (more soon).
