Re: New open source catalog and list of APIs on Data.gov

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, 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

So where are the other 65,843?

My audit for reproducible results is at: http://semanticommunity.info/An_Open_Data_Policy

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
