Nom nom nom APIs!

Posted 27 January 2011 - 08:41 AM

It was announced that the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) is doing away with the color coding system (CNN Link) and institute a "National Terror Advisory System" that will depict regional threats. This got me thinking - what if the NTAS comes with an API? I could slam up to the moment warnings on my applications with a marquee scroller! Awesome!

Better yet I could start snagging a few APIs and start mashing up the data. NTAS and the National Weather Service? Oh yeah! Over lay all of that on a google map to show the nexus of really really bad places! Maybe find the only decent place to be. 1. Decent weather? Check. 2. No political upheaval? Check.

Has anyone made some bad ass mashups that you've been holding out on me? Any thoughts on making some fun mashups of data? Any APIs you ping frequently?

Open Government Data Initiative (OGDI)

a bulk of APIs and mashups..
