Citadel on the Move is a European Commission funded (CIP PSP) project which aims to make it easier for citizens and application developers from across Europe to use Open Data to create the type of innovative mobile applications they want and need.
Open Government Data is often difficult to access and use by the developer community, let alone the average citizen. Citadel on the Move aims to overcome this challenge by:
- Defining strategies that make it easier for local government to release data in useable, interoperable formats;
- Creating and providing templates that make it easier for developers and citizens to create mobile applications that can be potentially used and shared across Europe;
- Pooling tools and resources into an Open Data Commons that facilitates access to data in different formats by shared templates and applications.
