Big news: Baltimore city opens up data spigot
Big news today out of Baltimore: the long-anticipated (by this blog) release of data sets by the city has finally arrived.
There's crime data, 311 data, tax data, parking citation data -- and much, much more. The data is available at this site: http://data.baltimorecity.gov/
What's cool about this new site is that it doesn't only allow you to view the data. Programmers and hackers and web geeks can export the data and come up with their own presentation methods for displaying the data.
What do you think? I want to see the mash-ups that get created with this data. Ping me if you plan on doing interesting things with it: firstname.lastname@example.org.
