Open Data Meets Yahoo Query Language


The main idea is to help developers ( or even semi developers ) to quickly query Taiwan's Open Data. However, since the Taiwanese government do not have a stable platform for hosting its dataset, we suggested hosting the data through Yahoo Query Language (YQL) platform with support from Yahoo Taiwan. Taiwan's government data is ported and made YQL ready. I've built a smart assisted query interface that allows non-technical people write YQL queries to extract government data.
