The report goes in detail to explain the main idea of the project based on the practical example of mashing up Google Maps with different third-party APIs and government data presented by Louay Bassbouss, project manager of MashWeb at the Future Aplications and Media Competence Center (FAME).

In this project, using FOKUS technologies developed by FAME, like MashWeb and Media Web Runtime, the potential of mashups is demonstrated and adapted to the requests of the public sector. At the same time, the requirements that go along with this, such as structured information from governmental authorities are researched and processed. The results are presented in the form of demonstrators, specifications and studies. Learn more about Government Mashups here or download the flyer here.
