Kasabi: NHS data

More fun with Kasabi and an update to my original post from the Open Government Hackday back in August 2011, and the subsequent Culture Hack day.

The NHS have published a lot of information in Open Data formats, and some of the datasets are available via Kasabi.

Because I love putting things on maps, I created a Kasabi API end-point which returns dentists in the London Borough of Lambeth.

This is the link to the kml generated by the Kasabi API:
http://api.kasabi.com/dataset/nhs-performance-data/apis/4bv?apikey=a36e7a3bcdd9fcebe0b32b0cef1a146912df1266&output=kml

Google Maps can consume KML data, so you can go to http://maps.google.com and paste the Kasabi API URL in to the search box, to see the data mapped.

(I had to try twice because first time Google Maps timed out while fetching the data. Subsequently it worked fine.)

This is the full link to the map.
