Learn how to access public data using the world's #1 open data solution, Socrata Open Data. Socrata provides tools to routinely extract and transform data from source systems, generating code that you can use to make data show up in your website or application. Everything derived from a Socrata dataset will update automatically whenever the source data changes.
This technology allows researchers, bloggers, news media, etc., to display city, county, and federal government data, real-time. Socrata is used by King County to communicate real time information about everything ranging from snow closures to election results. The local and federal government collect vast amounts of data that is available for reuse.
Join King County web developer Al Boss in a lively conversation about how developers can create lean applications using government data resources.
