Data.gov contains over 190,000 data sets, but only a select few are integrated into Data.gov's API key registration system. What is the process to integrate an existing API with data.gov as an API gateway and what are the benefits?

1 Answer 1


I'm not sure how to do the integration but the benefits are fairly obvious. You get to deal with a greatly "reduced" data set suitable for your needs, instead of having to sift through a vast amount of (mostly) useless data.

  • What about advantages to the data supplier?
