Developer API Page

The Developer API Page provides basic instructions for accessing our datasets programatically. This access allows website developers to integrate our data directly into their own maps and websites.

Data API

 - 

The Data (Records) API is used to retrieve information for any dataset. It is the preferred method for accessing data to be consumed or displayed in a tabular format. If the dataset has a spatial (map) component, the spatial information is returned as a simple latitude and longitude coordinated in decimal degrees.

Map API

 - 

The Map API is used to retrieve information for datasets that include a spatial (map) component only. It is the preferred method for accessing data to be consumed or displayed within a map. The returned spatial (map) component includes the full feature geometry. The format is easily consumed in a Microsoft Bing Map © using the Bing Map API.
