municipal-description-data

Machine readable (JSON) descriptions of municipal (city) council descriptions for use with opencivicdata/pupa.

See Edit the Jurisdiction's Metadata as a rough guide to creating a description and https://github.com/opencivicdata/municipal-scrapers-us as an example of application.

Meant as a way of sharing the data required to scrape and describe municipalities' councils.

#Usage

You can access a municipality's description data by following this convention on the static site:

country code/region code/city name with dash separators plus .json extension

Codes are two character standard codes. So Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA would be found at this URL:

/us/nm/albuquerque.json

Or Santa Fe

/us/nm/santa-fe.json

Countries where regions (aka states or provinces) are not relevant can skip them and simply use this pattern:

country code/city name with dash separators plus .json extension

Until we set up a permanent home, you can get the data by grabbing the raw file off github like so:

https://raw.github.com/opengovernment/municipal-description-data/master/us/nm/albuquerque.json

#Contributing

To contribute municipal description data, fork the repository, and submit a pull request.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
