Someone needs to create an open source version of data.gov
Every city, county and state municipalities need a copy. There needs to be a well written, secure and standards based open source version available.
It would be setup identical with:
- RAW Data Catalog with XML, CSV, KML, etc data files
- Tool Catalog or Marketplace
- GeoData Catalog
It would also give all the links to integrate and share data with other government entities.
It would have an FAQ, Share Tools, Blog , etc.
It wouldn't be that difficult to develope. Would just need the right specifications and team behind it to make sure it is written securely.
