Perhaps the biggest challenge of today regarding geographic information is to process and organize a massive amount of data from various sources, dates and especially, formats. Big data is about processing a huge and diversified volume of information, with high velocity and high relevance – which is what Google pretty much succeeded to do so far with the internet.
How about geographical information?
If maps, data points, places, layers of thematic information all the villages, cities could be handled and stored by you and me,how good it will be. You think it is an utopia?
A future project of wikimap will deliver this wonderful dream.
