How Open Information Can Help You to Pick a Spot to Live

Assume you were going to move to another city with which you weren't familiar . What elements would you consider while picking an area, road or address as your new home? Obvious things like housing prices, crime rates, and proximity to schools and public transportation would play into your decision. Nevertheless, some factors have influence especially on you.

PlaceLive, which first launced around a year ago, came to be when one of its prime supporters expected to discover a flat in Vilnius, Lithuania. "The standard land entryways were giving a great deal of data about the condo itself (size, rooms, pictures, utilities, year fabricated), however none data about the area - how safe is the area? Dirtied? Boisterous? What kind of neighbors live there?

Additionally, how is the area changing and what propensity it has - is it showing signs of improvement, more secure, cleaner or is it not?" PlaceILive CEO and fellow benefactor Šarūnas Legeckas let me know in an email.

Legeckas and his companions understood that a lot of this sort of data was at that point uninhibitedly accessible as open information from governments, privately owned businesses, and non-legislative associations. Nonetheless, the information were extremely scattered and in an assortment of organizations. Utilizing their tech abilities, they chose to gather these information for a modest bunch of urban communities and present them a visual arrangement to make it more absorbable. PlaceILive is still in beta and at present presents information for five urban areas: New York, Chicago, San Francisco, London, and Berlin.
