I created a website using open data and I would love to see it featured on data.gov/applications. Are there requirements to be featured on data.gov? Is there somewhere where I can submit my application for consideration?

1 Answer 1


On the Contact page at Data.gov you can select an option in the form to Submit an Application.

Requirements for the apps listed are also posted. Those apps must:

  • "Use open government data from the United States
  • Be accessible, vetted, and available
  • Be, for the majority, free and do not require registration to use"

Many of the apps have come out of businesses using open government data (see examples at the Open Data 500), city and Federal hack-a-thons, or challenges issued by the Federal government. But, anyone is welcome to submit their app or service to Data.gov.
