The Sunlight Foundation has announced three finalists for their Apps for America 2 Contest. Sign up for a free account and Vote for the winner!
The finalists include:
GovPulse.usis a “Federal Register browser” allowing you to browse the by agency, category or date. The visualizations are pretty cool too.
ThisWeKnow.org allows you to explore government data about your community. I did a search for my city, and it gave me a summary, but I also can look at how many people in my county were diagnosed with Cancer. Dang!
DataMasher lets you mashup two different data sources and you can share/comment on others. Sunlight Foundation really likes this mashup: High School Graduation vs Guns in Household.
Thank goodness for data.gov and the opening up of more government data so we can make cool applications like these!
