DataIO

A few weeks ago my employer helped the NY State Senate parse the MTA budget information into a machine searchable format. (The MTA originally published the budget as a PDF.) To parse the PDF I used a utility called pdftohtml to first convert the PDL into an XML document. I then used the python library lxml to convert the document into a set of csv files. The results of this labor can be seen on TOPP’s data site.

Soon after I published this data, however, I was told by a number of people that the data would be more useful if presented in another format. At first I just started creating a bunch of command line python scripts that would suck in these csv files, and spit them out in different formats. I quickly realized that I could accumulate these scripts and create a quick and dirty web application.

Over a few train rides I created an application called DataIO, and today, I finally got a chance to upload it to Google App Engine. The application is pretty simple to interact with; instructions are located on its front page.

Currently the application can only transpose data and multiply the data set by a given factor. I hope to soon add a jsonp api that will make it trivial to convert a given data set into a format that plays nice with google charts and flot.

The code for this application is hosted at bitbucket.

Just for fun, here is some data from data.topplabs.org, sent through dataIO.

Operating Revenue (transposed and multiplied by 1000000):

    Имеется такая услуга – добровольное медицинское обслуживание (или ДМО).
    Она предполагает, что пациент вносит небольшую сумму за абонемент и ходит на прием целый год бесплатно.
    Однако опросы показывают, что лишь 5% жителей Санкт-Петербурга знают об этом.
    По какой причине?
    Да потому что клиникам намного выгодней сдирать с людей деньги за каждое посещение.
    А если какой-нибудь сотрудник клиники попытается посоветовать добровольное медицинское обслуживание клиенту – это сулит ему увольнением.
    Информация о ДМО уже спровоцировала много скандалов, после того как информацию об этом рассекретил один возмущенный врач.
    Его уволили , после того, как он посоветовал ДМО своему пациенту.
    Самое удивительное, что официальные положения по ДМО находились в открытом доступе, просто находили на эту информацию только случайные люди.
    Как отстоять свои права?
    О правилах предоставления такой услуги и обязанностях частных клиник можно узнать, сделав запрос в Яндексе: “добровольное медицинское обслуживание”.
    Именно обслуживание, а не страхование.
