A unified sensing platform enabling applications to be aware of multiple aspects of a users context, while managing battery and memory health. The Awareness API unifies 7 location and context signals in a single API, enabling you to create powerful context-based features with minimal impact on system resources. Combine optimally processed context signals in new ways that were not previously possible, while letting the API manage system resources so your app doesn’t have to.
The Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program (OGRIP) is an organization whose goals are to encourage the creation of digital geographic data of value to multiple users, foster the ability to easily determine what geographic data exists and foster the ability to easily access and use this data.
The first step in making data actionable is to make sure the data is easily accessible. Many cities, whether they have an open data policy in place or not, have work to do in terms of making datasets open and available online.
