DC App Store: Your Mapper is a Top Non-Government App

In addition to being a proponent of open data on the federal level with Data.gov, Washington DC is also hands-down the best municipal area in the entire nation when it comes to putting their data online. That’s why we are thrilled to be one of their Top Non-Government Apps in their new App Store!

DC publishes much of their city data in their online data catalog. Last week, the city launched a first: a government site that features people who use their open data. A small slice of Your Mapper, its Washington DC crime report map, has made it to the Top Apps area. Take a look at our app details and the other people that have used the DC data for the public, and leave us a rating and a comment about how you use Your Mapper, even if it’s not for DC crime.

And to think, it took us less than 2 hours to grab the data and create the map. (Tweets: 1 2 3 4 5 6)
