Open data refers to data that is made available to the public in a manner so that it can be used as by asany people as possible. Open data for public transportation allows volunteers to build various services by making available real-time information including operation status and facility information such as train stations, bus stops, airports, etc. Already many people including challenged, elderly people, and their supporters have begun building their own information services.
Barrier-free facility information for barrier-free maps is being made available as open data by the government in cooperation with users, developers and local residents.
How barrier-free social infrastructure should be supported using open data approaches will be discussed at TEPS this time.
