Example of a Change

Each of the open technology items is described by its metadata, and this metadata is used to autogenerate the html necessary for the item to show up in this site so people can find and use it.

For example, if you wanted to add a new data set called “My Sample Data Server,” you would open the _data/apis.yml file and add four new lines for your new metadata item. Make sure to set values for all elements.

- title:
  id: data-cdc-gov
  tagline: " is a repository..."
- title: My Sample Data Server
  id: some-unique-id-wont-be-displayed
  tagline: "This tagline shows as the description for my new data set and will help users understand my data, so they can better use it."
