Microsoft on Oct 28th 2010 announced, during their Professional Developers Conference 2010, the commercial availability of DataMarket aka
Microsoft Codename “Dallas” which is part of Windows Azure Marketplace.
This DataMarket includes data, imagery, and real-time web services from
leading commercial data providers and authoritative public data
sources. In short, its the one stop show for Data or iTunes for Data.
And rightfully so. There are over 120 content providers to date with
content ranging from Demographic, geospatial, financial, retail, sports,
weather, environmental and health care. Some are for free and some are
premium based. Just to name few providers - Weather central, Zillow.com,
Navteq, Data.gov, The Word Bank and now LexisNexis.
We are very
excited to announce the partnership between Lawyers.com and Microsoft to
bring forth legal consumer articles to 3rd party Developers. As a
developer, you can now get specific area of law articles and put it into
their websites, stand alone applications or mobile apps. These articles
are typically written by Lawyers themselves and are categorized under
various areas of law. So if you have a website that is focused on
Bankruptcy alone, you can pull only those consumer articles that are
related to bankruptcy.
This LexisNexis offering is free of charge.
All we ask you in return is to link the article title back to its full
content on Lawyers.com and give us proper attribution from your
application. To get more details, follow LexisNexis branding guidelines.
an eye out on the DataMarket's catalog to see more datasets from
LexisNexis. Let us know what you think and what other data would you
like to see?
