Finding public data takes time. Keeping it up to date takes a ton of time. We're making it easier for people to find and use trusted data about Greenville, SC so they can build bigger things without worrying about the smaller things.
We'll do this by community curation (Wikipedia style) of the discover and maintenance of data sets. This will include an API, when needed, to allow programmers to build things atop the API.
Use this data all you want, but please don't create a competing copy of the same. There's no point. We'll gladly give you access to help maintain or extend what is here. Or, attend a Code For Greenville meetup and we'll give you a Fizz Buzz and then talk about the pros of migrating data to your system.
This site is built for the local community by Code For Greenville, SC Codes and people like you. It is intended as a resource for web developers to build new and interesting tools on top of the underlying data APIs.
However, much of the content is indexed in search engines and will inform the public until somebody builds a better mousetrap. By all means, make something new and pretty on top of the APIs and we'll gladly relegate this to the ugly, developer-centric site.
