Printer-friendly versionSend by email

On January 22, the White House issued a press release marking the release of nearly 300 data sets from 24 departments and agencies -- in time to meet the first major deadline of the Open Government Directive. The purpose of Data.gov <http://www.data.gov/> is to increase public access to high value, machine readable datasets generated by the Executive Branch of the Federal Government. Although the initial launch of Data.gov provides a limited portion of the rich variety of Federal datasets presently available, users are invited to actively participate in shaping the future of Data.gov by suggesting additional datasets and site enhancements to provide seamless access and use of your Federal data. With your help, Data.gov will continue to grow and change in the weeks, months, and years ahead.
