September 14, 2010 at 12:22 PM (PT)
The FCC has launched FCC License View, an online tool to allow users to access licensing information through a simple online dashboard. At launch, the system contains 3 million total licenses, 2 million of which are active.
"This data innovation is a key step toward opening the agency and its resources to the public," said Chairman JULIUS GENACHOWSKI. "With the launch of FCC License View, the agency has made a bold stride towards unlocking the complex -- but significant -- world of FCC license management data."
"The launch of FCC License View is a clear indication that the FCC is leveraging valuable experience inside the agency and converting that into valuable assets for the public to use," said GREG ELIN, Chief Data Officer. "This tool improves public access to these databases, while giving citizen developers and government agencies -- including the FCC -- a powerful way to make their work more efficient, effective, and transparent."
The site is at fcc.gov/licenseview.
