The service from the King County, Washington, government provides machine-readable datasets reflecting operations of county departments in Seattle and the region. Plans call for addition of datasets from across the region. The service complies with the Socrata Open Data API to increase standardization of access.
API methods support open access to county government agency operating data, with a range of datatypes specified from simple choices such as integer, datetime, string, and boolean along with complex combinations of simple types. Methods provide views of metadata describing available datasets, including access URLs. User-focused methods allow review and update of accounts for registered users of the service.
