Using open data to get from Point A to Point B and to improve transportation options along the way

Using only open-data sources, it's possible to power a wide variety of tools for personal navigation, transportation optimization, and planning and analysis. While open data may not always have the quality or consistency of commercial data sources, the open approach has unique advantages: Developers can more fully customize and tailor their use of data for their particular apps, visualizations, and analyses. New business models can be built when data licensing costs are less of a factor.
