Management of free and open worldwide localized addresses


Mai postánkból. A HUNAGI február 25-i konferenciájának az AGEO osztrák testvérszervezetünk által ajánlott előadója, Prof. Gernot Paulus írja levelében:
"Dear all,
On behalf of the Open Addresses team I would like to inform you about the successful launch of the www.openaddresses.org portal.
Currently there are more the 11 billion address available worldwide.
Below you will find a short press release. Providing now Open addresses now as a OS collaboration project will open now additional opportunities for implementing a national portal, e.g. for Hungary. So it would be great if you could forward this information to colleagues who might be potentially interested in this project.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Best regards,
Gernot Paulus

www.openaddresses.org BETA launched

Do you dream of free and open geolocated addresses ? or free and open geocoding and reverse geocoding services ? It's not a dream anymore, it's a reality ! After www.openaddresses.ch and www.openaddresses.atwww.openaddresses.org has been launched to collect worldwide localized addresses. This initiative of several people, universities and companies of central Europe aims to provide a web portail for the management of free and open addresses. The goal of www.openaddresses.org is also to collaborate nicely with www.openstreetmap.org by exchanging data. However, since localized addresses are very specific, we consider that it is appropriate to have a dedicated platform only for addresses.
Don't hesitate to add your own address, the address of your friends and of the friends of your friends ;-) If you'd like to be part of this effort, you can also provide address listing, orthophoto or whatever data that can be useful.
We are also looking for persons willing to participate to the development, the translation, the system administration, the testing, the communication and so on ...
You'll find more information in the following documents:
Thanks for your interest."
