The Carbon Project Deploys Cloud-based Open Data Platform

January 25, 2013 -- The Carbon Project today announced it has deployed a cloud-based open data platform for sharing transportation data between local, regional and state organizations under a project with the Eastern Carolina Council of Governments (ECCOG) that was funded by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure Cooperative Agreements Program (NSDI CAP).

The deployment provides an easy-to-use platform so local data stewards can upload and translate their data on North Carolina streets and roads into a common information model. To date, street data from over 80 counties in North Carolina has been uploaded using the Carbon ‘Transformer’.

“The Carbon Transformer allows local government spatial data stewards to maintain their transportation data in its native format, to meet their business needs, while also sharing it with State and Federal agencies who need data in a common format,” says Jeff Harrison, CEO of The Carbon Project. “This allows State and Federal agencies to aggregate contributions from many sources in seamless statewide and national products.”

The NSDI CAP is funded by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and administered by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) to help form partnerships among organizations to implement the components of the NSDI.

The Carbon Transformer is part of The Carbon Project’s new cloud-based open data platform, CarbonCloud Plus+. CarbonCloud Plus+ supports a wide variety of mapping information, and enables development of seamless, open data based on standards from regional organizations, states, the FGDC and others.
