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.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
