The projects worked on at the event that involved legal data include the following:
- LexView — developed by Lexum — “an end-user interface for publishing large structured documents on the web.”
- You Rule — developed by Herb Lainchbury — “an application that monitors legislation and let’s you know what’s changed. It lists each change as a separate page so that citizens can view, rate and comment on the change.”
- Law Server — developed by Kevin McArthur — “[a] tool for developers [that] uses a standard Uniform Resource Locator (URL) schema for legislative data, and allows the easy translation into different data formats.”
Here are posts about the event that I’ve been able to identify:
