The recent launch of Texas Tribune’s Data Library is a great example of how media and government clients are utilizing Caspio Bridge to publish databases and share engaging web applications that increase website traffic and community interaction.
Texas Tribune is a non-profit news organization located in Austin, Texas, devoted to state government and public policy. They aim to promote civic engagement through original, explanatory journalism and public events.
The data library contains over a dozen database applications, all intended to give readers more information about the state’s government and its elected officials. Database applications built using Caspio include Lowest Performing Schools, Partisan Rankings by District, Texas Campaign Finance Database, and Government Employee Salaries containing records of over 250,000 public employees.
Texas Tribune also plans to utilize Caspio’s advanced deployment capabilities to give visitors the option of easily downloading data or embedding the apps on their own websites.
