Municipalities open their GIS systems to citizens

Many public administrations already use open source Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to let citizens look at public geographic data trough dedicated Web sites. Others use the same software to partially open the data gathering process, letting citizens directly add geographic information to the official, high-quality GIS databases by drawing or clicking on digital maps, as I reported in this article for I have covered this theme also during the congress about Free Geographic data in Pontedera.
