Leading the Federal Innovation Charge — The Department of Commerce

Government Computer News (GCN) announced today that Census’ CitySDK and the Commerce Data Service’s Commerce Data Usability Project have been nominated as finalists in the Open Data category.

CitySDK provides a single service that abstracts and simplifies the developer experience for working with three core Census Bureau application programming interfaces that provide statistics, geocoding and geographic shape files for mapping.

The Commerce Data Usability Project is a collection of data guides for the Commerce Department’s high-value datasets, lowering the barrier to entry for individuals and companies that want to solve problems or create businesses by leveraging the department’s open data.
