Library of Congress to Hold Legislative Data App Challenge

The Library of Congress plans to launch a prize competition for citizen coders to suggest ideas on how to modernize public access to the government’s legislative data, FCW reported Tuesday.

Bud Barton, chief information officer at LOC, said at the Legislative Data and Transparency Conference the library will seek applications for its legislative data application challenge in the coming weeks.

The competition aims to help the public understand the legislative process through the development of systems that would merge centuries-old data with modern technology.

Barton added he envisions apps that generate digital comparisons of data produced over decades or display legislative topics that may encourage collaboration between members of Congress.
