Swiss Transport Data: Next Steps / Transport Working Group Kickoff

Charles Andrès-2
Dear all,

with the development of wikidata, it’s interesting for the wikimedia community to stay update about the initiatives to obtain open datas. is an association really active in Switzerland to obtain the release of Open Data, from the government and the public institution, but not only.

One of their working group is working around Transport Data, if the train schedule are not so interesting for Wikipedia ;-) we may be interested in Train Station geo-localization or other factual data.

Please find below the announcement for the Kick Off of their Transport working Group.


I use this email for mailing list only.
