Together with NetPort Science Park, Karlshamn municipality in Sweden are opening up their point of interest data through the Open-DAI cloud infrastructure. As part of the pilot programme they are focussing on the placement and metadata of equipment in the municipality. Examples include lamp posts, waste bins and parking meters.
Error reporting web application
As part of the opening up of POI data NetPort has also created a virtualised database of issues, to enable citizens to report problems with equipment. A mobile web application presents POIs on a map, centred around the user’s current position and lets the user view and create reports attached to the POIs. The application is currently in closed beta, and is being tested internally by the municipality.
