Project NemDigitaliser (literally, Easy Digitize) is a stupid name I came up with last year, and for various reasons recently returned to.

Project NemDigitaliser is my ‘hands-on’ experiments with the data provided through these initiatives. has a REST API. I looked at it last year, where I couldn’t really crack the nut, and ended up doing some simple screen scraping instead. I recently returned to the api, and have started to understand it, I think.
