– Directory of Government XML


Alex Madrigal (who put together Wired’s wiki on government data) pointed me to’s wonderful gem of a reference of XML resources in the Federal government. Might hide some great ideas and data for use in Apps for America entries.

This site is an attempt to document, in one place and in a uniform manner, the web services and XML data sources that are provided by the US government. The site includes source code snippets to help developers better understand how the data services can be used. The projects in which those snippets were extracted are available for download as zip files. When you click on the Example: link, you will be redirected to a location that contains the zip file. To use these projects, developers will need Visual Studio 2008 (or later), .Net Framework 3.5 (or later) and a connection to the internet.” (Emphasis added.)
