Google Australia plans to incorporate data released by the Government 2.0 Taskforce as part of an 'open access' initiative into its Google Maps platform.

Taskforce member and director of engineering at Google Australia Alan Noble told iTnews that the web giant was "going to look at all of the data sets" released by federal and state governments "to see which of those can be used."

"There's one data set in particular that we've been trying to get our hands on for quite some time - which is the national toilet data set," Noble said.

"That's certainly one data set that we're very, very keen to use and get those toilet locations on Google Maps for example".
