Charlottetown Building Permits RSS

I’ve hacked together an RSS Feed for Charlottetown Building Permits. The feed doesn’t index building permits themselves; it’s simply an index of the weekly PDF building permit summaries published here by the City of Charlottetown.

In theory, whenever that page gets updated with a new weekly summary, the RSS feed should get updated with a new item, pointing to the new summary. It appears that the weekly summaries are released every Monday, but I’m not completely certain about that.

Please don’t build the RSS feed into anything important, as its contents may change, and the feed itself might disappear; this is only an experiment. I’ll release the “feed creating” code when I’ve got a little more time.

This is neat. Please detail all and any technical compromises you had to do, to be able to snag the data you have, at the moment. It’s exciting.

And, the use of color in the charts. Euwww.
