Weather Forecast

A Met Office tutorial indicates the DataPoint service can now be used to download "a complete list of the forecasts for every location in the UK at each available timestep" in either XML or JSON format. I have interpreted that as meaning the whole dataset is downloadable at once. (This obviates the need to revisit last year's debate about whether the separate API on Azure Marketplace really supplies bulk data.)

Availability of the data only in machine-readable formats via an API imposes a technical learning curve and therefore reduces the general accessibility of the data. Met Office could for example make the data more accessible by publishing a daily CSV extract of the dataset.

Government Spending

Actual expenditure data from the Northern Ireland Executive is available through the UK Treasury OSCAR database https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-oscar-publishing-from-the-database, however, this is not the same as transaction-level expenditure.

Datasets are available at: http://www.nisra.gov.uk/geography/postcode.htm Central Postcode Directory (November 2015) http://ons.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=d7fe815217504f4eac0cb07170747094 UK ONS Postcode Directory (November 2016) However, there are no address references. The data is particularly difficult to find. It exists in different places, with different levels of updated-ness, and with different access arrangements. Percularity with the Northern Ireland data - though it is included alongside the Great Britain postcodes (UK Government Licence), it carries a separate licence https://www.ons.gov.uk/methodology/geography/licences Furthermore, the data is both available free of charge, but you can also also be charged £260+VAT by the government department if you are not aware of this https://mapshop.nidirect.gov.uk/Catalogue/Digital-products/Address-data-and-gazetteers/Central-Postcode-Directory/197a466c-60ce-4373-813a-8cccc6480f74.
