Your data, on an interactive map

Change your data, watch your maps change too


 

Sometimes, your data need geographical representation. OpenDataSoft makes it super easy to turn geographical information such as zip codes and addresses into coordinates. You can even turn district names into geographical shapes.

OpenDataSoft’s connector library also allows you to anonymize sensitive geographical data or convert Lambert II projection into WGS84.

What about images?

It’s even better than scrapbooking.


 

Whether you collect images of football players or work of arts, the OpenDataSoft solution instantly creates interactive galleries that you can easily embed.

Your images are hosted on a distant server? No problem. The platform instantly converts URLs into images. You can now share your image collections with the world as searchable APIs.

 


 

Search your data with OpenDataSoft Smart City Solution

Searchable data

Pull that needle right out of the haystack


To properly leverage your data, give your users a proper context and description. OpenDataSoft customers can write extended meta descriptions (DCAT and INSPIRE standards, or their own template).

With comprehensive context, keywords and licensing, your end-users will instantly find what they’re looking for. Even better, they’ll also know what they’re allowed to do with it.
