Objective, non-industry supported mapping organizations

»Avoiding A $300 Million Broadband Mapping Boondoggle

objective, non-industry supported mapping organizations
That phrase is not necessarily true. Non-industry organizations are no more objective by definition than industry organizations. They have their own agendas as well and those agendas aren't necessarily any more in the public interest than industry ones.

industry data would be excellent if:

a) it was transparent and could be verified by anyone

b) they didn't insist nobody else could do anything with it without their permission

the problem right now is they claim "it's proprietary, so we can't let you see the raw data" and they insist on complete control of the use, even if govt $$ paid for "collecting" it.
