Hear me talking about the Eye on Earth online tool. This website shows data from thousands of air and water quality stations from across Europe in real-time. (By the way, I say 60,000 stations in the video but I was told I got a little ahead of myself - it's actually 6,000!).
An example of applied interoperability
The interesting thing is that the data displayed is collected by the European Environment Agency on a Linux Server and processed by Microsoft technology - a true example for seamlessly working interoperability.
This is a topic which we care a lot about at Microsoft: the ability for different technology platforms and applications to work together and increasingly an absolute MUST when developing new technologies.
