  3. 3. THE FEEDBACK
  4. 4. Andrew Turner: Github Followers = 200 + 1
  5. 5. During development: You can get Census boundaries by sending GeoJSON in the request? THAT’s going to save us time. At the end of the session: We spent most of our time on the UI because were able to easily use [this functionality] to really quickly draw a custom boundary and pull down the Census boundaries and data we need to display on our map.

  7. 7. It was really nice that you guys abstracted the bringing together of geographic [boundaries] and the Census variables. Trying to make these calls separately and then put them together is probably not the most efficient way of doing things... [this way] it was easy. Daniel Fenton, ESRI

  10. 10. Daniel ? The examples and interactive documentation really helped us get productive quickly. Thank you for the help.

  13. 13. Brian Brotsos, USDA I really like the modularity of the SDK. With the modular architecture, in one hour, I was successfully able to take your code and create a module for a USDA API.

  15. 15. ● Move examples to github.io pages ● Enforce a consistent naming convention ● More aliases ACS aliases to correct (arcGis) ● List of features (consider making a list of links with teasers, but each having it's own page with examples, tutorial, etc.) .IO Pages ● Variable search engine (still think the Search functionality would be cool here), maybe pull down the Census Reporter functionality ● Tutorials for implementing each feature / module (consider allowing users/pull requests to add feature/modules to the list of features) ● Query Builder ● Custom variable transformations, ala' F.R.E.D. ● Document the level of detail for the response objects as well as the documentation for the request objects ● D3 example (charts) ● Choropleth Mapping tutorial/example ● Make JSON response consistent across geographic levels (i.e., different levels currently are structured differently) even if it means returning empty fields ● Geocoding functionality by sending in city, state and getting back a geojson boundary ● Tutorial for pulling point data by Census Boundary REQUESTS (No particular order):
