Jeanne, Thank you. The Data.gov Catalog and a specific example (Federal Data
Consolidation Initiative) and the New Data.gov Catalog (thanks to Gannon)
and a specific example (USGS Sediment Texture Database) using the same Data
Platform (Spotfire) for the catalogs and the examples are found at:

Hi all--

 

Here's the way to download the entire catalog.  The Data.gov catalog
(exclusive of geospatial data) can still be accessed at
https://explore.data.gov/Other/Data-gov-Catalog/pyv4-fkgv  You can use the
export button at the top right to be able to download it in a variety of
formats.

 

The API is another way to access the entire catalog.

 

We are exploring other ways to make the newly integrated catalog available.

Thanks, Jeanne. Please send me the link to download the entire and new data
catalog.

 

I am getting ready for: On Thursday, May 23rd at 2:00PM ET, Federal Chief
Information Officer Steven VanRoekel will host a conference call to discuss
the 1-yr Anniversary of the  <http://whitehouse.gov/digitalgov> Digital
Government Strategy and ongoing Administration efforts to drive innovation
through open data and other initiatives.

Brand--

 

As John pointed out, the entire and new catalog (as of this morning) is
available at https://catalog.data.gov/dataset <http://catalog.data.gov>  

 

The catalog at https://explore.data.gov/Other/Data-gov-Catalog/pyv4-fkgv is
our previous catalog of "raw" data that is not part of the larger catalog
above.

 

The number differs from our earlier number of datasets:  The total number of
datasets reflects datasets plus data series. A data series may contain a
large number of additional products or files of the same type. The previous
Data.gov catalog counted the individual datasets and not just the series and
therefore had a higher total number of datasets noted. The change in number
does not reflect a change in the size of the catalog, but rather a different
structure of data products in the new catalog.

 

Hope this helps to address any confusion.

 

--Jeanne

Jeanne, Thank you. I heard Doug Nebert announce this yesterday at the UCGIS
2013 Symposium:

http://ucgis2.org/event-item/preliminary-program

 

When I look for the 73,651 data sets, I find only 7,808 at:
<https://explore.data.gov/Other/Data-gov-Catalog/pyv4-fkgv>
https://explore.data.gov/Other/Data-gov-Catalog/pyv4-fkgv

 

So where are the other 65,843?

 

My audit for reproducible results is at:

Thanks, Brand

Hi all--

 

I invite you to visit Data.gov to see the new catalog for browsing U.S. open
data: http://catalog.data.gov <http://catalog.data.gov/>  We have combined
raw and geospatial data from many sources across the U.S. and presented it
through an open source tool, CKAN. 

 

In connection with the U.S. Digital Strategy we have also created a new list
of government APIs: http://www.data.gov/developers/page/developer-resources
