USDA Market News is launching a new electronic data platform to deliver market price information to the agricultural industry. The new web-based platform, Market Analysis and Reporting Services (MARS), uses state-of-the-art technology to present detailed data sets in a more customer-focused way to better support competitive markets for producers. We will be hosting a webinar detailing this new service on Thursday, March 29, 2018 at 2PM ET.
MARS improves the transparency, speed and accuracy of USDA Market News, and facilitates the flow of data from more than 3,600 markets to AMS analysts and ultimately to producers, industry and the public. The new dynamic interface provides data analysts one-stop instant access to agricultural commodity data through a searchable database with the ability to create custom reports, data sets and data visualizations to make large amounts of information more easily understandable in a fraction of the time. Businesses may also utilize the built-in application program interface (API) to use the data to create new uses for the data as customer needs evolve.
Join our MARS team to learn more about MARS and how it improves data access through the API. The webinar will walk-through how any user can collect large datasets from MARS and provide a Q&A session with users. To learn more about MARS, visit https://mymarketnews.ams.usda.gov/.
