In the last post, I started a series on building open government applications with transit data. If you read that post, and followed along, you’ve now got all of the GTFS data released by the Delaware Transit Corporation imported into a MySQL database.
If you’re someone who is interested in this series, and cares about open government data, then you should take a quick detour over to the Socrata website to complete a short survey on open government data.
This survey is part of a larger study being undertaken by several organizations prominent in the open government data movement. Various components of the study are focused on the importance of open government data from the perspective of citizens, government employees and civic application developers.
If you like building civic applications with open government data, take a few minutes and complete this survey.
We’ll get back to building the new hotness in transit apps shortly.
