Announcing bigopen.eu, an initiative offering not only a rich directory of open data, but also the tools to query and explore those data.
Bigopen.eu is made up of the following components :
- a directory of open data resources, searcheable by keys (provider, type, language, area, and more) and extensible;
- a cloud-based (Amazon AWS) data farm, scalable on demand, and ready to sustain harsh big data challenges ;
- an Apache Drill based platform, to run queries on Drill supported datasets, such as JSON, CSV, etc;
- what's more, a wizard to build your own query , to let unexperienced users to handle SQL without specific skills.
Bigopen.eu is aimed at agencies, companies and professionals ready to make use of proprietary and/or open data, but still lacking the necessary tools.
Please visit bigopen.eu, and let us know how this new initiative can match your needs.
