A simple API for schools


Government shouldn't build websites, especially not ones for short term issues such as schools affected by snow closures, they should just make APIs and developers can then make them.


This is a very simple faceted API made out of the Edubase dataset using Googel App Engine

Ideas for taking this project forward

Government should do it (and now they have, the Edubase data is part of data.gov.uk, is accessible using SPARQL and will soon be available via an API).

Estimated costs for taking this project forward

About the data used for this project

I used the Edubase CSV file which was nicely formatted and pretty clean.
