The U.S. government’s portal for the data it creates, Next.Data.gov, is getting a revamp that should make it easier to view and reuse government data.
The update should also help federal agencies comply with a White House executive order issued in May to make government data machine-readable by default.
The beta version of the site, now available for user testing under a subdomain of Next.Data.gov, features more visualization of government data, an expanded section for communities of interest, and a stream of examples of government data usage by third parties.
