Abstract

This project expands the functionality of the Massachusetts Technology, Talent, and Economic Reporting System (MATTERS) for the Massachusetts High Technology Council (MHTC), a protechnology advocacy and lobbyist organization, through the addition of two new features, namely, an Application Program Interface (API) and the Metric Builder. This API defines a communication protocol between MATTERS and other computational-based systems. Extensive API documentation was developed. The Metric Builder is a tool that allows users to create their own indices with custom rules out of existing MATTERS metrics. This empowers them to track individual states' performance using their own custom models.
