Map of Every Public Building in France
The French state owns 107 billion euro worth of buildings in France and around the world. Data Publica, a site dedicated to open data in France, has created a French State Property Map to show the location of every French publicly-owned building.
The map, as it stands, only allows users to search the properties by location. The beauty of open data, however, is that you can use it to create your own map. For example, it would be simple to build a map that lets you query the data, for example, by type of building.
If a Publicly Owned Property Map doesn't appeal to French map developers Data Publica has a lot of over open data just waiting to be mapped.
