Just after midnight last night, here on the East Coast, a new part of Data.gov went live. http://www.data.gov/business
Politico’s @MorningTech reported this morning that around 200 new datasets were released to the public.
At present, I’m seeing 120 datasets, most of which relate to the agricultural industry, census data or import/exports:
US CIOtold entrepreneurs at the StartupDC event last night that he hopes that when launches Business USA later this year, you will have already built apps to help.”
I can’t help but be curious: is this the government data would entrepreneurs find most helpful?
If not, what data sets would be most useful to developers, in terms of making an app that someone would use or improve existing application?
If you’re a business owner, what government data would you want easy access to on a daily or weekly basis?
As always, comments welcome.
