The City of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island has historically released building permit, subdivision and rezoning approval data only in PDF format, which affords citizens with limited opportunties to use this data to build value-added applications.
This project is an attempt to provide the City with the data formats, tools and sample applications necessary to migrate to an XML-based method for releasing this data to the public.
- Weekly_approvals_webpage_11_Mar_2011.pdf - an example of the original PDF file the City of Charlottetown posts of its website
- charlottetown-permits-2011-03-11.xml - A hand-coded XML version of the data in that PDF file.
- charlottetown-permits.dtd - An XML DTD for that XML file.
- charlottetown-permits.xsd - An XML Schema for that XML file.
- get-address-from-pid.php - A PHP script to retrieve handy civic address information for a given PID.
