Traffic signs of Hansbeke, Belgium

Description

This geospatial dataset contains all traffic signs of Hansbeke, a small village in the municipality of Nevele, Belgium. I recorded these by using Google Street View and walking around.

Rationale

In my professional life, I standardize and publish datasets created by others, and try to convince them to publish these under an open license. The goal of this project was to collect data myself and do the same.

I am well aware this dataset is completely pointless (I was very bored when I started this), but in the meantime, I learned to use CartoDB, Git, GitHub, and Data Packages. It also involved walking, which is healthy.

Dataset

This repository is a Data Package. It contains:

  1. traffic-signs-hansbeke.geojson: the data as a geojson file.
  2. datapackage.json: a metadata file describing the dataset, including the license and field definitions.
  3. Additional files.

The dataset was originally created using CartoDB, but is now maintained and versioned on GitHub. An older version of the dataset is still accessible on CartoDB and can be downloaded in additional formats.

Licence

The data are released to the public domain under Creative Commons Zero (CC0) (LICENSE).
