When the broadbandmap.gov site launched several weeks ago, we were surprised to find their data was available via API. While we love broadband data sets, we love it much more when the data is available via API. And it was good timing for our launch, having released our first broadband map just the week before. So within the day we were using the FCC’s API to show the FCC Consumer Broadband Speed Test data.
Michael Byrne, the Geographic Information Officer at the FCC pointed out how we are using the FCC API on the FCC’s blog. He was pretty excited to see how quickly we had utilized the data in our application.
