Harvard provides web platform for data sharing

Harvard’s Center for Geographic Analysis developed and released WorldMap, a cloud-based open source software platform aimed to make publishing and sharing maps, and other geospatial data easier.

The system is designed to support the research process, allowing information to initially be made private, before being opened to larger groups for refinement, and finally to be published or released to the public.
