Kickstart your web map app!

Do you want to avoid writing boilerplate code for map applications? Would you rather take a ready-made template for your apps and start hacking away the cool stuff? Oskari and RPC may be just what you're looking for! Oskari is an extensible and versatile map application platform which provides an easy user-interface for creating embeddable maps to websites. Embedded maps can be controlled from the website with an API to create innovative and user-friendly applications. The API includes features that allow you to 'visualize data' on the map and/or 'react to user interaction' with the map, allow users to give feedback by 'drawing on the map' or create a custom trip planner with routing features. The API can be easily extended by adding features to Oskari platform. Oskari has been originally developed by the National Land Survey of Finland, but now being developed and used by multiple organizations, also internationally. There are numerous websites already making use of embedded maps, including Finnish national e-services.

A crowd-sourced public transportation map for Nicaragua's capital

There has been no map for the forty-five bus lines in Metropolitan Managua, where around 1.5 million inhabitants are dependent on buses to commute to work or school. But engaged citizens used Free Technology and the power of collaboration to create the first complete public transportation map of a Central American capital, by using OpenStreetMap and through crowd-sourcing and also crowd-funding methods. We present the final products and talk about the publication of our outcomes as Open Data. We will also mention the local challenges and the nature of creating a map of informal transit information of a partially unregulated bus network It is a case study about Open Geo Software can empower people and enhance development, where information about transportation is lacking.
