A multi-tenant GIS recording and reconciliation system to collect, process, and distribute pedestrian pathway data.
Multi-tenant: CommonPaths utilizes private OpenStreetmap servers allowing users their own personal instance of the program. These servers can upload and download data to and from the public OSM server establishing a new means of collaborative work in the pedestrian data realm.
GIS: CommonPaths is a geographic based program that utilizes location data and operates on up-to-date mapped locations.
Recording and Reconciliation: CommonPaths' data collection and management system align with all existing GIS data formats making it universally applicable.
CommonPaths offers services that have yet to be combined in a single application. Not only that, but in a standardized format that we hope to share globally - ultimately changing the landscape of pedestrian data for good.
OSL 3.0 is a copyleft license that will maintain CommonPaths' open source nature as it is derived. This is important to us because we want to see that this project gives back to the open-source community and the best way to do so is to ensure that CommonPaths is available to everybody as a resource. We believe that open source drives innovation and to that end, OSL 3.0 is consistent with those ideals while offering a level of protection that is warranted.
CommonPaths was developed in a joint effort between King County Metro and MV Transportation. King County Metro holds the intellectual property and licenses this IP to the world under OSL v3.0 and manages the overall project. CommonPaths digital resources are run by the King County Metro Transportation Access Team. More about us here.
