Attempting to locate some content to populate some databases
Posted on 2008-06-12
I am attempting to prepopulate a database with content (i.e. the Make, Model, and Years of currently available vehicles), and was wondering where I might download or otherwise purchase this kind of data. The kind of program I'm writing is used for something akin to Crime Scene Investigations (it's not CSI, but closely related), so some of the data (i.e. the Makes and Models of weapons) may set off warning bells with the wrong people (just being safe, 9/11 has everyone on thier feet), so I guess for some of this stuff I will have to request the data directly from the appropriate department, but all things aside, I'd like to see what I can get from here first...
