Data is the most valuable resource governments can provide developers — it’s the fodder for civic hacking. The challenge for governments is to make their data accessible in a way that developers can quickly build ontop of it. DataCouch makes it easy. As a simple, quick conversion tool, DataCouch can take any dataset and make it into a programmatically accessible API, meaning that datasets once trapped on computers inside City Hall can be leveraged by developers anywhere. Plus, it also provides the tools to fok, merge, share, and clean-up the data, making it better and more useful. DataCouch allows any government to become a platform.
