Melpedia is an open database of Melbourne locations and events. Current location and event databases are very expensive and only available in proprietary formats that are infrequently available. These databases are collected using out tax dollars yet the cost of using them is far outside the reach of an independent software developer. The Melpedia strives to be a solution for that problem.
