As a work of the US government, there isn't any license appropriate for the work, because it's already in the public domain (in the United States). So a license like the Unlicense (or CC0), in which the licensor is entering the covered work into the public domain, doesn't work. Some text that acknowledges the public domain status in the US is helpful (and ...

The stats seem to have been quoted on a number of sites. The official name of the program was the "CARS program". You can find additional statistics on the transactions here: http://www.nhtsa.gov/Laws+&+Regulations/CARS+Program+Transaction+Data+and+Reports The "Final Paid Transaction Database" appears to be what you're looking for. It's available as a ...

Wow - this is way harder to find than I would have expected. I do think I found one potential lead for you from the source of truth (USPS themselves). As part of their API offering (https://www.usps.com/business/web-tools-apis/documentation-updates.htm) there is a "Service Delivery Calculator" service which takes an origination and destination zipcode and ...

The FAA does not seem to provide a stream of ADB-S data, but does provide a stream of about airplane location and disposition called Aircraft Situation Display to Industry. Getting access to this stream is not completely straightforward, but you can start with the FAA's page on the program.

The processes vary from agency to agency. In general, data is gathered as part of a regular task for a project or program within an agency (this could be the Mars Program or the 2010 census). The data is structured, validated, and organized, and then that data is used for a purpose for the agency (anything from scientific analysis of the surface of Mars to a ...

I checked out the webpage. There is a 'Export to Excel' link on the page. I tried it. It downloads a file called 'OrganizationList.xls'. But you cannot open it in Excel. I checked the contents of the file and it is an HTML table. To view the file, change the file suffix to '.html'. As far as extracting the data, I would use a convert HTML table to CSV tool....

Because of ISO's business model, they always charge for standards ... however, as many editors want the standards to be freely available, many TCs (technical committees, a group of people that oversee a group of ANSI standards) post the final draft of the standard and make those freely available, as they're more interested in adoption rather than profit-...

Short answer: because ISO makes money selling the technical specifications. It's not closed the standard per se, but the specification (so if you're writing software you'd need the document. Searching on the net I found the first edition of the standard ftp://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/misc/outgoing/ed/pre_2013/GHRSST_metadata/ISO%2019115%20.pdf Also from NOAA some ...

Although the FAA does not redistribute ADS-B data, FlightAware (the largest aggregator and provider of this data) does offer worldwide ADS-B data feeds in a variety of formats: https://flightaware.com/commercial/data/adsb/

I was actually using the wrong format for date. It should be something like this: records = c.get(agency_name=o['name'], last_modified_date="["+str(next_date)+","+str(next_date)+"]") or records = c.get(agency_name=o['name'], last_modified_date="[2018/12/17,2018/12/21]")

Unfortunately, from PoliceMisconduct.net's own FAQ: Why do this? Simply because nobody else does. Only a small fraction of the 17,000 law enforcement agencies actually track their own misconduct in a semi-public manner, and even when they do, the data they provide is generic and does not specify what misconduct occurred, who did it, and what the end ...
