The Official FCC Blog has been moved to FCC's main website
Today the Federal Communications Commission released two new Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) on our developer page at fcc.gov/developer. The new APIs leverage data from the Spectrum Dashboard and provide the developer community with direct access to these assets.
Managing spectrum is one of the FCC's primary responsibilities. These APIs are tools that unlock our substantial databases related to spectrum ownership, spectrum use, and spectrum capabilities at different locations.
Below is snapshot of the two APIs.
When we released the first set of APIs back in September, we did so as part of our Data Innovation Initiative efforts towards better data transparency and open government. We continue with those efforts by releasing the second set of APIs today.
Your feedback has been essential to improving these API releases and making them more valuable to developers in the wild (see previous conversations here and here). Let us know what uses you might have for APIs like these, recommended tweaks, or suggest APIs you want to see in the future.
Do you have or can you determine how many frequency spectrum interference reports were received by the FCC on a weekly, monthly or annual basis? Where are these reports filed, and are they available for review by the public?
Is there anyway you can make a a self submitted spectrum usage tool for the unlicensed frequencies such as 900mhz/2.4ghz and so forth. I have had many collisions and interference problems with these, or would that be a job for a amateur html programmer and fellow user's of the unlicensed frequencies?
