Made for developers

Our data has been designed from the bottom up with developers in mind. A flexible RESTful API is available to select time-series, specific location or even specific sensors. Data can be downloaded in JSON or CSV format. Register for an API key to enable frequent requests. There are no plans to ever charge for the data.

Explore the opportunities through our data portal. Let us know what you're doing so we can contact you with updates and developments
