chart of religion

Since 1990, the fraction of Americans with no religious affiliation has nearly tripled, from about 8 percent to 22 percent. Over the next 20 years, this trend will accelerate: by 2020, there will be more of these "Nones" than Catholics, and by 2035, they will outnumber Protestants.

JSON-LD - JSON for Linking Data

JSON-LD logo

Data is messy and disconnected. JSON-LD organizes and connects it, creating a better Web.

Linked Data empowers people that publish and use information on the Web. It is a way to create a network of standards-based, machine-readable data across Web sites. It allows an application to start at one piece of Linked Data, and follow embedded links to other pieces of Linked Data that are hosted on different sites across the Web.

Here's how to use data from OpenStreetMap for your infographics • Konrad Lischka


Using OSM Boundaries is simple. Type the name of the city or state or district you are looking for in the search slot above the map. Then OSM Boundaries shows you the correct entry from OSM in the directory tree on the left. Here you select the boundaries you want to export. Important: The tree is hierarchical and you must select all the levels you need. If you select a city and need the boundaries of the underlying urban districts too you have to select...

What is data science? - O'Reilly Media

Maps are data made into a product.

The web is full of “data-driven apps.” Almost any e-commerce application is a data-driven application. There’s a database behind a web front end, and middleware that talks to a number of other databases and data services (credit card processing companies, banks, and so on). But merely using data isn’t really what we mean by “data science.” A data application acquires its value from the data itself, and creates more data as a result.

GitHub - project-open-data/csv-to-api: Proof of concept to dynamically generate RESTful APIs from static CSVs

Dynamically generate RESTful APIs from static CSVs. Provides JSON, XML, and HTML.

The simplicity with which CSV files can be created has made them the default data format for bulk data. It is comparatively more difficult to create an API to share the same data atomically and transactionally.

GitHub - 18F/open-data-maker: make it easy to turn a lot of potentially large csv files into easily accessible open data

tags: API, 18F, csv, data, open
overview of data types, prompt to download data, create a custom data set, or look at API docs

The goal of this project is to make it easy to turn a lot of potentially large csv files into open data via an API and the ability for people to download smaller csv files with a subset of the data.

Preliminary research suggests that open data users (journalists and others) actually know how to work with spreadsheets really well, but a lot of the data sets that we have in government are huge.

The most innovative and damaging hacks of 2015 | Network World

The most innovative and damaging hacks of 2015 The year's most significant attacks highlight how hackers are changing tactics -- and how IT security must evolve in the year ahead

Not a week went by in 2015 without a major data breach, significant attack campaign, or serious vulnerability report. Many of the incidents were the result of disabled security controls, implementation errors, or other basic security mistakes, highlighting how far organizations have to go in nailing down IT security basics.

Mapping Poverty to Beat It

Did you know that three out of every ten kids in our nation’s capitol live in poverty? That’s about 40 percent more than the national average!

They attended our DC DataDive in March 2012 and threw down a challenge: build visualizations of traditional well-being data for kids living in DC that can be used to fight this battle against poverty.
