Today we’ve added support for querying the data that appears on Chicago Health Atlas by adding JSON endpoints for the major pages. If you want to get access to the underlying data that drives our maps and charts, just add “.json” to the URL of pretty much any page and we’ve got you covered.
You can see all community area and zip code boundaries in Chicago by eyeballing our map:
Or you can see the raw data http://www.chicagohealthatlas.org/places.json:
@SmartChicago Awesome. I’d love to be able to ping an API and get each location’s data as a JSON chunk.

@SmartChicago Nice, can the raw data be accessed at all, or are we limited to browsing via the map interface?
