Open Data Initiative – Free SuperVIEW hosting of data


Space-Time Research this week launched a new program called the Open Data Initiative at the International Statistical Institute (ISI) 2009 conference in Durban.


What is the Open Data Initiative?
The Open Data Initiative is a Web 2.0 site for disseminating public data. Users discover and explore data in a rich, interactive, and intuitive application, rather than browse or read large documents of published tables and charts. The end user can select and visualize any combination of data. It can be exported, printed, linked to, and shared in collaboration environments.

The Open Data Initiative is a freely available online service for the creation and dissemination of data for public consumption. You have the data; we have the service to disseminate it to the public.

The Open Data Initiative is hosted on the Google AppEngine Cloud, enabling providers of public data to create engagingand rich Web 2.0 experiences built on top of Space‐Time Research’s SuperVIEW product suite. This provides transparent, lightning‐fast web traffic responsiveness, scalability and built in redundancy no matter where in the world you are.

Data types suitable for the Open Data Initiative: Health, Transport, Education, Agriculture, Population Statistics, Labour Force, etc.
