ALEXANDRIA, VA, January 25, 2013 - The Carbon Project today announced it hasdeployed a cloud-based open data platform for sharing transportation data
between local, regional and state organizations under a project with the
Eastern Carolina Council of Governments (ECCOG) that was funded by the
National Spatial Data Infrastructure Cooperative Agreements Program (NSDI

The deployment provides an easy-to-use platform so local data stewards can
upload and translate their data on North Carolina streets and roads into a
common information model. To date, street data from over 80 counties in
North Carolina has been uploaded using the Carbon 'Transformer'.

"The Carbon Transformer allows local government spatial data stewards to
maintain their transportation data in its native format, to meet their
business needs, while also sharing it with State and Federal agencies who
need data in a common format," says Jeff Harrison, CEO of The Carbon
Project. "This allows State and Federal agencies to aggregate contributions
from many sources in seamless statewide and national products."

The NSDI CAP is funded by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and
administered by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) to help form
partnerships among organizations to implement the components of the NSDI.

The Carbon Transformer is part of The Carbon Project's new cloud-based open
data platform, CarbonCloud Plus+. CarbonCloud Plus+ supports a wide variety
of mapping information, and enables development of seamless, open data based
on standards from regional organizations, states, the FGDC and others.
