Carbon Project Selected to Provide Cloud-based Data Interoperability

The Carbon Project today announced it was selected to provide cloud-based tools to support mapping data interoperability under a project with the Eastern Carolina Council of Governments (ECCOG). 

The effort will engage local, regional and state organizations to exchange transportation data, transform it into a seamless statewide ‘Roads’ layer and assess the potential for collaborative data maintenance in the future.

“The time for mapping data interoperability is now, and some of the best information comes from local governments,” says Jeff Harrison, CEO of The Carbon Project. “Our goal is to make it easy for local governments to exchange their mapping data with state governments, federal partners and other users.”

The Carbon Project’s cloud-based data interoperability platform supports a wide variety of mapping information, and enables development of seamless, open data based on standards from regional organizations, states, the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) and others.
