SharedGeo Kicks Off Its First “Shared Funding Project”
Today, SharedGeo announced it has commenced the first of what it hopes will be many “Shared Funding Projects”. In concept, these projects use SharedGeo as the donation and management hub for projects that one entity alone does not have the funds or resources to back. A rewrite of the U.S. National Grid Mashup for the Google Maps API is the kickoff project. The project has a total budget of $5,000, with SharedGeo contributing the first $1,000 to get the project underway. When complete, this project will be available to the public without charge. Donations to SharedGeo are deducible to the full extent allowed by law. Learn more about Shared Funding Projects or the U.S. National Grid Mashup project.
