The mission of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is to ensure that people have regular access to enough quality food to lead healthy lives. FAOdata is FAO’s web-based platform bringing together statistics, maps, pictures, and documents on nutrition, agriculture, and food from throughout FAO. FAOdata has exposed a number of resources through REST and SOAP APIs. Developers can automate adding, retrieving, deleting, updating, searching, and browsing resources within the FAOdata catalog. Other API services include automated translation of FAO resources and multidimensional queries in the FAOdata warehouse. Responses may be returned in XML, JSON, or JSONP format.
