findable 4 since i know IPP is responsible for maps and geolocation data from Rio de Janeiro’s city it was easy from that point on.
findable_steps i googled IPP maps and IPP shapefile and got the links i needed it if i google "geodata rio" IPPs open source platform is the first one on the list, so, i suppose it's easy to get the data.
licence_url http://portalgeo.pcrj.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/66c4 the link is an example, at the footer there is information about open source license that's in every dataset download page.
Collected by government Yes
usability 3 IPP’s open data geo website has a search engine, which helps, the whole website is really easy to navigate. http://portalgeo.pcrj.opendata.arcgis.com/
collector_name IPP- Instituto Pereira Passos IPP is a municipal government institute linked to Rio’s Urban Planning Bureau, and it is responsible for the official Cartography and Municipal Geoprocessing of the city.
characteristics Scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km), Markings of traffic routes, Markings of relief/heights, Markings of water stretches, City borders I can get a map with the scale 1:10,000 of the whole city - which is bigger then 1:250,000, so I that's why I considered it checked. I was able to download data from Sub Basins, so i checked the water stretches map. I can also get data from several ways the city is divided in a public policy kind of way, from neighborhood to policy watch areas, and so on, also markings and reliefs. The only problem i got was on downloading "markings of national traffic routes", i was able to find only through both Universities websites i linked before.
