Building a GeoDataMarket

Imagine you want to buy GIS data. Where would you go? There are lots of free or free-ish catalogs, maybe it would be nice if there was a place to share data that had been made ready for various uses. I ran a quick twitter survey on what to live stream and a whopping two people voted, the first of which was to work on geo data market ideas. Therefore, I live streamed on twitch the creation of a geo data marketplace which now lives at geodatamarket.net.

It took about two hours and is backed by WordPress, woo commerce and a marketplace plugin.

There’s a single product available so far, it’s natural earth raster geoTIFFs cut out by country (250 files) with transparent backgrounds. Anybody could make this data with some work or, just go download it. People like you can log in and create their own downloadable map data products and sell them, or just set them to free.

The livestream videos are broken because my microphone broke, but here they are anyway:
