What does this app do

Data collection is the basis of any visualization project. This app read data update periodically through specified RSS or other real time data feed API, such as FAA flight status API, municipal service requests, open weather map api, etc. If the data feed is not realtime but still updates in regular time series, such as EIA open data api, this app can also arrange a periodical data read and get the latest data. Otherwise, this app can just behave as a web scraper.
