A path to open government…
Promoting open government is part of our core mission, and OpenGeo Suite software is built to be open from the start. Our software helps agencies take concrete steps towards transparency, participation, and collaboration to fulfill the Open Government Directive.
OpenGeo provides a path to transparency through the OpenGeo Suite—robust software for publishing geospatial information. The OpenGeo Suite allows agencies to cost-effectively publish government data via powerful web maps while the reduced costs of scaling enable more government data to be displayed to citizens.
Our software encourages participation by enabling interactive access to data layers, documentation, and working examples—not just maps for viewing. OpenGeo software excels in architecting systems where citizens can build their own applications around agency data or crowd-source additional information to help governments make policies with the benefit of information that is widely dispersed in society.
And because it is standards-compliant, the OpenGeo Suite fosters collaboration that encourages partnerships and promotes cooperation within the Federal Government, across levels of government, and between governments and private institutions.
