What is City Context?

Our goal is to provide a straightforward access to local data. We want developers to be able to display information such as schools, transport, and crime statistics with minimal fuss, by way of a simple call to a JSON endpoint. A wealth of reliable open data on various subjects is being released. However, it requires a lot of work to understand how this data is shaped, how to best aggregate it, and how to combine different datasets. By doing this job upfront for you, we save you time and money, and reduce your risk. This way, you can focus on displaying the information most appropriate for your audience to increase the value of your content.
