The AirMap API integrates tools that help create GIS, and drone applications. The API offers information related to advisories, notice requirements, and can interact with airspace obstacles, and rules. JSON is used for responses. Developers are required to obtain an API Key. AirMap sources their own data so that drone manufacturers and developers don't have to to worry about sourcing their own airspace databases. AirMap is an airspace technology firm based in California.
This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Mapping and Location APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
