Inside the Developer Center
The new Developer Center on Recovery.gov gives complete, machine-readable access to the data reported by recipients of Recovery awards. Anyone interested in creating widgets, apps, or other mashups with Recovery data can now do so using the Recovery API. We’ve also made it easier for people and organizations to post Recovery data on their own websites through our two widgets – one displaying State Data Summary, the other an Advanced Search Widget that allows in-depth data searches.
Also provided in the Developer Center are 3rd-party widgets and apps. ESRI, the mapping software company collaborating with Recovery.gov to deliver many of the maps you see in the Map Gallery, offers their ArcGIS API. Sunlight Labs has developed an app for mobile devices that allows you to view Recovery projects in your vicinity.
We hope the resources and ideas in our new Developer Center inspire you to create Recovery data apps and widgets. Please share your thoughts and ideas with us!
