Canadian development and design company Uproot, in conjunction with the City of Toronto, has developed a REST-based API for accessing and retrieving Toronto's budget data. Using this web service, anyone can take advantage of methods that expose the functionality to query a database containing Toronto's operational and capital budget data.
Users can slice and dice the data as they please - operational data can be queried by department or expenditure/revenue types, while capital budget data can be looked up holistically or by any one of the 44 wards of Toronto. Additionally, there is a Toronto Wards KML Overlay for Google Maps that can be incorporated into applications or mashups. This API returns data in XML and JSON, and is available to use freely for any means.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
