FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

State Agency Databases Activity Report 4/20/2014

It was a slow week for the volunteers at the State Agency Databases Project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases.

SOME STATE DATA SETS AND APPS AVAILABLE FROM DATA.GOV

While not in scope for our project, we wanted to note the presence of a States section at data.gov. This page links to state produced data sets, apps, state data policies and current programming challenges. It is far from comprehensive but still interesting to look through. You can find a link to this section on our main project page after the listing of state pages.

FEATURED DATABASE

Today’s featured database is from Annie Moots, who maintains the┬áMissouri┬ápage:

Consumer Confidence Reports

This database contains yearly reports of community public water systems in each county of Missouri. Information in the reports includes assessment of the water source, contaminants and their ranges found in the water, violations of drinking water regulations, and much more. The database is searchable by county then by water system. It is maintained by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Public Drinking Water Branch.

DATABASE CHANGES

This week the only significant change was that Mark Rozmarynowski updated a few links on the Wisconsin page.
