A new Government website data.gov is available from today.

It aims to get more information and data held by the Government online.

You can go to the site and suggest ideas for how information could be presented.

So if, for example, you wanted to know how many disabled pupils were in each mainstream school in your area, you could suggest this as an app.

The site has only been live for a few hours, and already the following apps have come from ideas suggested by the public:

House price trends

Where your taxes etc go

Alerts for planning applications in your area

reporting potholes in your area

Finding postboxes near you

Why not visit the site and suggest an idea?
