A New Open-Source Framework for Government Projects

More than 600 local, state and federal governments have signed up for the Waze Connected Citizens Program, and more than 80 have expressed interest in a new Waze open source processor—New York City; Los Angeles; Anchorage, Alaska; and Denver among them—to contribute code or deploy the finished solution. The only cost they’ll incur will be that of paying the cloud provider, Amazon, for storage and data transfer: less than $200 a month.
