    Looking for data? Data.gov is a one-stop resource for the U.S. government’s open data—federal, state, and local government and university-collected data on topics ranging from agriculture to energy to public safety. There is a general search box (useful when the name of the target data set is known), as well as the ability to filter by location, topic, topic category, data set type, tag words, format, organization type, organization, and/or publisher. The website provides metadata on each data set, along with links to the data and the agency/organization providing the data set. It also contains a list of (and links to) apps that use the U.S. government open data, including product recall apps and the Alternative Fueling Station Locator, College Affordability and Transparency Center, and Home Energy Saver.
