Widgetising the Foreign Office’s travel advice

Over the short life of my blog on the site of the UK’s Foreign Office, I’ve posted a number of times about the ways you can access our feeds , some more feeds and how Directgov’s Innovate team in the UK took up the challenge to build an API.

The thought behind this remains consistent – we want to free up our information so that developers and website owners can pull the travel advice from the Foreign Office directly onto their sites, widgets, and applications.

Ever helpfully, the crack team at Directgov Innovate have come up with a widget too. You can find it here , and you can cut and paste the code into your own site, feeding travel advice into your own pages. It’s a neat way of giving your site some added value. Well, I think so.

It’s joint branded as FCO and DirectGov – but it doesn’t have to be. If you want your own company logo on there, you drop a note to us here and we’ll see what we can do. You can either contact us by email at [email protected] or leave your comments on this blog.

And if you haven’t already, you can also sign up for Directgov’s syndication pilot here .
