The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) and the Open Transport Partnership have launched SharedStreets, a platform for mapping features of cities’ streets.
SharedStreets standardizes street-level GIS data to make any public or private source’s information compatible and easily exchangeable.
Creators say the platform currently focuses on three main functions: traffic safety, real-time traffic monitoring and curbside management. It’s designed to expand functions as new types of data are imported and will allow cities to better prepare for transportation tech advancements.
