Dataset previews

25 Votes

Category: 
When looking at descriptions of CivicApps datasets, it'd be nice to have a photo preview or link to a preview map. For example: what does the streets centerlines dataset look like, or how extensive is the Bike Parking dataset? Check out the Washington DC data catalog site for an example (see their 'See it on Google Maps' list). http://data.octo.dc.gov/

I plotted the points from the bike parking dataset as a proof of concept for this idea. I believe I wil be able to automate the process to generate previews on the fly
