MaPitGo to Application app
MaPit is a web service that provides point and postcode lookups to current and past administrative area information and polygons.
MaPit is used by many services - notably all of mySociety's sites, but many third parties as well - to provide postcode and administrative body lookups for many diverse tasks, such as contacting your local representatives or reporting broken civic infrastructure.
If geographic information is available, the open source code can easily be reutilised by other countries - this has already been done by Norway, who have a version at http://mapit.nuug.no/ that used open postcode data and OpenStreetMap boundary data - and we hope other countries will too soon.

Evolution of European Union legislationGo to Application app
Explaining the legislative activity of the European Union in time and within different policy areas.
It answers simple questions like: "how much EU law relates to energy policy?", "has the legislation been growing or shrinking (quantitatively) within a given time frame?" , "are there more EU laws related to nuclear energy than to coal?" "how about oil and gas in 1974?", "how many EU laws are related to shipping compared to air transport?" "how many of these laws are directives/regulations/decisions?" etc.
All these questions are answered in a simple easy to understand way. Before the visualization and api.epdb.eu it has (as far as we know) not been possible to find an answer to these questions.
