Live Data Feeds
 
For years, the District of Columbia has provided public access to city operational data directly through the Internet. Now the District has gone one step further and is streaming live data that District agencies gather through normal operations.

Live Data Feeds report agency information hourly, daily, weekly and monthly, depending on the underlying dataset. Data is provided in three formats:
 
Format Description
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) Offers summary report information. If you select the RSS links below, a new window will open displaying the XML code since you are not meant to view the RSS feed in a browser window. To view the data, you must add the feed to an RSS Reader, or to a browser that supports RSS feeds. Learn more about RSS feeds
Atom Offers detailed data better suited for the parsing of information by automated programs for populating databases, displaying information on web pages, or other similar applications. Learn more about Atom.
XML Offers detailed data usable by desktop spreadsheet applications. Learn more how to view XML feeds using MS Excel*.
 
Data feeds are available for download through the links below.  All reports and detailed data are stored on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis in archives.
