One of the largest source of Public Data Metrics, and making it better. #markets #economics


Discovering insights and mining data can be a lot of fun when you have access to good public data.  It has been fun to watch the public data discovery segment grow and grow over the years.   In all my years of doing data analysis and development, public data insights is just a big pain in the butt.  Inaccurate data, data out of date, pay services and limited views of the data makes it very frustrating.  Then you watch and listen to the TV and Radio financial shows and it makes you wonder where they got those numbers.  I always found it a pain and wanted better access to those numbers, so what should I do?  Add it to my app.


In Atlas Insights, you can browse into the catalog and just click or tap a category.  Quickly you’ll be shown a list of public metrics available at your disposal to view.  Also, at the very top of the app, just type in your search and I’ll quickly show you a list of matching metrics for you to view.  It can’t get more simple than that to find and analyze a public metric.

Below is a list of public metrics that I have loaded and am loading more and more as the days and weeks go on.
