JSON + Zip Code + $0 = How Much Info?

December 8th, 2009

JSON zipcode data
Armed with a budget of $0, I decided to spend an hour or two last night trying to accumulate as much data as possible using only a zip code, a static HTML page, and some javascript. Not a single dollar was spent, nor a single image created. The page is up here.

I’m sure I’ll add to this project as I find more free data sources, but so far I have:

  • Location Name
  • Lat/Lng of Zip Center
  • Weather Info
  • Forecast Data (4 day)
  • Recent Earthquakes within 100 miles
  • Local Wiki Entries (5)

If you have any XML or JSON data source suggestions that take LAT/LNG or Zip Code as parameters, email me at christopher[ at ]dittoditto.com and I’ll add them to the page.
