I wrote this question about real time catastrophes information systems.

The definition if this question should be on-topic it is probably important since it brings to the table a new (given the present questions on the site) type of open data: real time open data.

Open real-time data is definitely something that we'll see a lot more of in the not-too-distant future. Therefore, it is not just on-topic, but very relevant to the Open Data SE. One nice example would be the London public transportation real-time data provided by Transport for London.

  • I agree. Many of the popular datasets on Data.gov are those that are provided in real-time or near-real-time (such as earthquake data for the last 7 days: explore.data.gov/Geography-and-Environment/…) (Disclaimer: I am the Evangelist with Data.gov) Commented May 15, 2013 at 20:37
