Currently, the CivicApps Data Catalog provides access to flat dataset files. A consolidated regional open data API is needed that provides aggregated public information from governmental entities, transparency organizations, and volunteers throughout the Portland region. A good start would be for existing CivicApps datasets to be made available in the form of a single consolidated Portland API (PAPI). The goal is to create a generic platform that allows for the creation of live collaborative web applications that extract and extend the CivicApps data using APIs. Possibly leverage a Moksha Hub?
