FCC Broadband Map Featured by CBS

Michael Byrne of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave a really good talk at FOSS4G, telling the story of the FCC National Broadband Map application, which is built on open-source geospatial tools. In addition to being open-source, it’s a modern web system that makes diligent use of caching and other techniques to achieve great performance. I do a lot of work in the Federal space and, in my opinion, it’s one of best public-facing Federal web tools deployed in recent memory.

CBS News, in discussing a new $4.5 billion broadband fund by the FCC, features a nice screenshot of the system. It’s nice to see good work and innovation get recognized. Michael and his team should be proud.
