Organization Chart Data is accessible as an XOXO document by calling a URL formatted as http://www.cogmap.com/xoxo.php?id=<CHART ID>
xoxo.php returns a nested set of unordered lists that describes the organization. Each listed item also contains several pieces of metadata associated with the list. The format is:
<li><a href=”profile.php?id=<personID>”> <FirstName> <LastName> </a> <dl> <dt>Title</dt> <dd><TitleValue></dd> <dt>CogID</dt> <dd><personID></dd> </dl>
- personID: the ID in Cogmap’s database
- FirstName: Person’s first name
- LastName: Person’s last name
- TitleValue: Person’s title
- The title of the document is the chart’s name.
So here is an awesome example: XOXO No Inc Chart!
Hopefully this starts to satisfy the data-consumers out there like Stamen Design, who were emailing ideas for how to implement this virtually from launch.
