Open source airport data has been freely available for a while. The data is typically available as large CSV files.
Whilst CSV files offer a flexible, platform-independent data-sharing solution, this approach often involves time-consuming manual workflow processes to transform the data into more useable formats, updating databases, application testing etc.
In an attempt to streamline current workflow processes we have developed a restful API to bridge the gap between CSV files and web applications.
This article is part of a multi-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2017. Big Data and Data Analytics 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.
Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Email and Games. Featured today are APIs from Split for deploying targeted software rollouts and from Mailsac for testing email services. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
