Google Map Layers and Open Data

Using Open Data on Google Map to construct information of location of Schools to get more teachers to share their lessons and network with others to enhance their teaching and learning.






all data are from the Google search, i merely made a layer to show most of the schools that i know exist in Singapore, so that i can verify the data in OPAL by commontown.


This is an awesome presentation on Open Data Open Source Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Environment and Water Resources and Minister-in-charge of Smart Nation, Singapore
I hope for more openness of data and source to educational materials too.



I also believe in Open data, Open Source. Thank you Minister for sharing your leadership as Minister-in-charge of Smart Nation and very impressed by his Technology know how to use Node.js to call API to the ministry open data in XML.
If i can help in any way, do let me know especially in education section.
with the power of Open Source Physics, i have also created a small collection of open educational resources here http://iwant2study.org/lookangejss/, for the benefit of all.
